Seaf-cli on Linux - sync folders not persisting after reboot

I’m running Seafile server on Ubuntu 22 without issues. On the same server I am synchronizing a local copy of the libraries (yes I realize this duplicates storage).

I used:
seaf-cli init
seaf-cli start
seaf-cli download – to set up a synchronization

In crontab:
@reboot /usr/bin/seaf-cli start

Total size approximately 5TB. After synchronizing completed, I rebooted the machine, but the libraries are no longer being synchronized. In order for synchronization to occur, need to run seaf-cli sync for each of the libraries to start up synchronization again.

Is this expected, or am I missing a step?
