Package Version defines are not updated/re-evaluated when modifying the package.json manifest



Reproduction steps:
1. Open the attached project ("case_1220938-FailedReimport")
2. Open the repro scene ("VersionDefineTest")
3. In Hierarchy, select "VersionDefineTest" object
4. In Inspector, notice that public "VersionDefineIsWorking" variable is visible
5. In the Project tab, select "Packages/NMY Core/package.json"
6. Change the selected manifest's "Version" to "0.9.0-b"
7. Select the same "VersionDefineTest" object in the Hierarchy

Expected result: Version defines are updated and "VersionDefineIsWorking" variable is no longer visible
Actual result: Version defines are not updated and "VersionDefineIsWorking" variable is still visible

Reproducible with: 2018.4.18f1, 2019.3.6f1, 2020.1.0b2, 2020.2.0a3
Couldn't test with 2017.4 (Packman not supported)

1. In very rare cases, the issue does not reproduce from the first attempt. In the repro project, setting "Version" back to "0.9.0-d" always reproduces the issue (the variable does not appear again)
2. Reimporting the "NMY Core" package fixes the issue

  1. Resolution Note:

    Since the modification is not done to a script, a recompile is not triggered. A reimport of the package using the modified value is necessary to use it properly.
