There is a design flaw in SuSEconfig and maybe you are falling foul of it.

When you run SuSEconfig,  /etc/permissions.local is referenced by
/sbin/conf.d/SuSEconfig.permissions . However, other scripts in this
directory run afterwards and may undo what you have done.

Or maybe you are just not running SuSEconfig?
