Python upgrade

Hi at all,
probably it's an already asked question but I cannot find the correct one:
I upgraded Splunk to 8.0.2 on my test site before to execute in production systems.
I setted (as documented) in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/server.conf [general] the python.version = python3 and (after restart) this setting is confirmed by btool.
But checking the Python version (with splunk cmd python -V) I still have Python 2.7.17.

Where could be the error? I missed some step?
in documentation there's only to add the python.version = python3 row in server.conf and restart Splunk but I still have the old.

Now I'm checking on a Windows system but production systems are Red Hat.

Thank you.
Ciao.
Giuseppe

Adding python.version = python3 is not required as i think.Since i see that python 3 is already running. Is it correct?

/splunk cmd python3 --version
Python 3.7.4
