Unless you are switching between permissive/enforcing and disabled (or
vice-versa) you done need a reboot - just use setenforce to change the
running behaviour...

Also as usual in the redhat world look to /ets/sysconfig/selinux ...
although in this case that's just a symlink to /etc/selinux/config I
have been tripped up on more than one occasion with only editing stuff
in /etc and then wondering why behaviour is not as expected... and as
such find it good practice to get in the habit of checking
/etc/sysconfig before doing straight to the other /etc/<service>
