Flow connections after solution import


I'm creating a solution containing a PowerApp and many flows. I also use an environment variable (datasource) to maintain my connection to SharePoint.

Now when I export my solution (managed) and import it on another environment, I'm prompted to update my variable (as expected). However, the flows still reference the "old" (development) URL. The only way I have found to fix this, is manually edit every flow on the destination environment, and just save it. 
I'm I doing something wrong? Or did I forget something? Or is it just the way it works?

for flow its expected behavior when you import flow to different environment you will have to  change value to point to new environment

Thanks @kierian

but then what is the use of the environment variables? Lucky enough I just have to edit and save the flows (not changing the connections themselves). But I would assume they would pick up the "updated" variable
