onBeforeWrite calls

I've extended Member object with onAfterWrite function that adds users to contacts group. Here is the code:

class MemberContact extends DataExtension {	

	static $belongs_many_many = array(
				'Companies' => 'Company'

	function onAfterWrite() {
		$group = Group::get()
						->filter('Code', 'contacts')

As you can notice there is many_many relation of Member with Company dataObject. My question is that it seems that onAfterWrite (or onBeforeWrite for that matter) doesn't get called when I add a member as many_many relation to Company object (through admin interface (modeladmin)). It gets called when I create new member, though. How can I achieve this? Is this feature or a bug?
