Not sure I follow the question, but I think you are asking if applying a master password changes the running configuration on the device.  The answer would be no the only change is how secrets are stored on the device not the active configuration.

IMHO, the master password is used to locally secure the password. It does not affect the actual value which might be used to communicate with other systems like Radius servers etc.

 

Thanks!
