I created a content type using a WSP feature and deployed it to my site with a list using this content type.

Later, I had to make changes to the list, feature, columns etc.

I made those changes, deployed the feature again, disabled and re-enabled it through powershell.

The list seems to have updated, but not the content type?

It seems like you are running into the issue of not being able to change content type while it's being used but not sure.

Normally when I built WSP with content types I would just update the content type using code if I needed to make changes. IAW, once the WSP was created and deployed, I would no longer "visually" touch the content type but instead, modify/add the feature updated event to push all the changes from there in code. If the list is inheriting properly it should reflect those changes just fine.
