Which desktop system are you using?  At hotplug/unplugging, the kernel
drm issues a udev event, X Intel driver receives it and updates
Xrandr.  Then it's supposed that a daemon like gnome-settings-daemon
receives Xrandr notification and changes the modes appropriately.
Without such a background task, there will be no mode change.
