Autoreload of freeradius configuration files

I am using freeradius 3.0.20 for one of the projects.
For my requirement I am using it as a proxy server. I am able to update the
required configuration file (client.conf, proxy.conf and
site-enabled/default) with the clients, realms and home-server details, to
proxy the incoming request to the home server.

My query is that for this requirement I need to add/delete the new/old
clients in "clients.conf" or add/delete home-server configuration in the
"proxy.conf" file. But for every change in these files I have to restart
the server in-order for the change to become effective.

Is there any way to dynamically read these configuration files ((client.conf,
proxy.conf and site-enabled/default)) without restarting the server?
I have tried the HUP signal method, but it's reloading only the freeradius
modules even when I changed any of these three files.

Kindly advise.

Thanks & Regards,
