You need to update the one in conf/Catalina/[host], since that overrides
the ones in the .war and the unpacked directory.

It wouldn't surprise me if Tomcat is doing some merging of the two
<Context> elements, rather than enforcing a complete override.

Tomcat automatically creates the conf/Catalina/[host]/[appname].xml file
from META-INF/context.xml only when deploying apps packaged in .war
files, regardless of the setting of unpackWARs; it does not create one
in the conf directory for apps that are deployed in an unpacked form,
although you may place your own in conf/Catalina/[host] to override the
one in META-INF.
