yes, you have in this case.
basically, dynamic collection should pick up changes like server share 
mounted in another place (given that server name/ip and share path has 
not changed) without a collection rescan, aft should pick up files moved 
in some other ways, given that file itself (including tags) has not been 
changed at the same time.

i think that should have worked, but try "tools->rescan collection". 
maybe some mtimes were not updated or who knows...
