sssd uses few levels of caches. If you want to have up-to-date data
you need to invalidate sssd cache (sss_cache -UG).
Details are in man sss_cache. It is not related to FreeBSD. The same behaviour
is on LInux.

If user authenticates to machine with sssd then fresh data is downloaded from
server. That's the only exception.

sudo is much more tricky about up-to-date data. sssd uses peridic tasks for
refreshing rules. It is not possible to invalidate sudo rules with tool
sss_cache. Detail description of sudo rules caching mechanism is in manual page
