With latest beta (2.16.224) it's now possible!
You can enable mentions using <boolean name="user" value="true" />

Forgot to restart WA? Didn't make the changes correctly? Typo in config file? Edited wrong file? Looking for the changes in the wrong place?
Works fine here with https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.whatsapp

It's normal.
You can solve editing file permissions, but i don't suggest.
