Thanks for reminding me that this platform acts a bit schizophrenic at times ;-)
And of course you nailed it.

Standby chassis switch processor:
Configuration register is 0x2100 (will be 0x2102 at next reload)

I think it's pretty odd that a controlled reload is required to save the new setting.
We did that in a maintenance window and now all 4 registers of our VSS  are
set to 0x2102.
