xfconf array not translating to xinput properly


I am trying to set some trackpad properties via xfconf-query and/or settings editor. Everything seems to be set properly in the settings editor and the pointers.xml file in ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/pointers.xml, but it is not translating to xinput properly. To be specific I run

xfconf-query -c pointers -p /Apple_Wireless_Trackpad/Properties/Coordinate_Transformation_Matrix --create -t double -t double -t double -t double -t double -t double -t double -t double -t double -s 1.500000 -s 0.000000 -s 0.000000 -s 0.000000 -s 1.500000 -s 0.000000 -s 0.000000 -s 0.000000 -s 1.000000

and everything looks good (screenshot of settings editor): gPODASCl.png

(screenshot of pointers.xml)

However the pointer doesn't behave as I expect, and when I query directly to xinput via

xinput list-props "Apple Wireless Trackpad"

The (relevant) output is: Coordinate Transformation Matrix (155):    1.500000, 0.000000, 1.500000, 0.000000, 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000
Any ideas what's going on? I can set the property directly via xinput set-prop, but it quickly changes back to the xfconf values. Thanks in advance for your input and help!

edit: I am running 16.04
