Default xorg.conf doesn't appear to be read

I'm running Solaris SXCE 114. I noticed after I log in if I start the application "nvidia-settings" my whole desktop will blank for about one second then reappear. After it reappears I noticed that the whole display was brighter with more contrast, similar to adjusting the gamma. Also, my mouse cursor was "shadowed". I remember setting the mouse some time ago and forgot about it. So I looked, and there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. No problem, I'll use the "nvidia-setting" utility to save a new xorg.conf file.

After this task was completed, I verified that the file was saved. I rebooted my computer, it behaves as if nothing was changed. I started the application "nvidia-settings" application again, and my whole desktop will blank for about one second then reappear. After it reappears I noticed that the whole display was brighter with more contrast, again and also, my mouse cursor was now again "shadowed".

How come Nvidia/Xorg doesn't appear to read the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?
