Ionic SplashScreen settings not working at all

Hi, i am trying to configure the splash screen on my app. I would like to disable auto hide and set the aspect ratio mode. I have tried changing the settings in my config.xml and/or capacitor.config.ts files. But none of them work (even the delay settings, etc.).

My current settings:

config.xml:

    <preference name="AutoHideSplashScreen" value="false" />
    <preference name="SplashScreenDelay" value="3000" />
    <preference name="FadeSplashScreen" value="false"/>
    <preference name="FadeSplashScreenDuration" value="750"/>
    <preference name="ShowSplashScreenSpinner" value="false"/>
    <preference name="SplashMaintainAspectRatio" value="true" />
    <preference name="SplashShowOnlyFirstTime" value="false" />

capacitor.config.ts:

plugins: {
    SplashScreen: {
      backgroundColor: "#ffffffff",
      androidScaleType: "CENTER_CROP",
      launchAutoHide: false
    }
}
