Rock Pi 4B+ disable serial console

Hi I’m trying to disable the serial console that is active on UART2.
When I edited the hw_intfc.conf to disable UART2 completely the kernel would not even boot.

I find it strange that after in dmesg the serial console is being disabled but being enabled almost instantly.

rock@rockpi4b:~$ sudo dmesg | grep tty

To my knowledge are all packages like rockchip-overlay, u-boot, kernel and rockpi4-dtbo up to date.
