Unable to change settings in xfce4-terminal

I have xfce.xfce4-terminal installed on Hyprland and when I open the preferences dialog of xfce4-terminal and change something, the setting is not actually saved - going back in shows it reverted to defaults. Additionally, if I create ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc by hand it is ignored. Anyone have any idea what I am missing?
