 It's okay if what is currently in the file system stays at the old block size if that's
possible ?


The block size is actually a per file setting. Each client can set its
own block size assuming unless you marked the variables as <final> in
your configuration.

Changing the value does not change current blocks, it only serves as
default for new blocks.
