FlowableClassLoadingException: Engine looking for classes at older class path

Recently, I’ve changed the classpath of my Spring boot application using embedded Flowable engine version 7.0.0.M1
For example, older class path was “com.a.b.c.GetItemsWorker” (GetItemsWorker is my class)
New class path is “com.x.y.z.GetItemsWorker”
When I try to run the existing Workflow which was created before changing the class path then I get below error,
org.flowable.common.engine.api.FlowableException: couldn’t instantiate class com.a.b.c.GetItemsWorker

I’m wondering why Flowable engine is looking for older class at older class path.
Interestingly, if I update and save the existing Workflow which was causing the issue, then I Don’t get this error

Could anyone let me know what is happening?
