Follow-up Comment #6, task #7395 (project weechat):

It is because the string needs to be evaluated when you use it, for example
when you connect to an irc server, the irc server will read the value of
option with password, evaluate it (with eval_expression), then send it to

Otherwise if you changed the value in secured data config, how could it be
propagated to all options?

And then secured data is not stored in options (as a cache, which would use a
lot of memory), it's always retrieved on-demand.

To sum up, it's for performance as well as saving memory.

If you need more info or have ideas to change some things, feel free to join
