Whenever I add new variables, they are not automatically added to all my currently open flows for that configuration.

The product is working as designed. Switching between configurations for a flow does not delete the variables from the previous configuration.
We recommend saving any currently open flows (or closing and reopening), and then new variables will appear in the flow. This is intended behavior, but could cause a big list of variables. Removing unused variables manually is the only solution.
