Program has ACTGRP(*Caller) and LR is not set on.
So does the program initialize once per job or once per job per file?

Once per job.

What I would like to know is that, if I set a global variable to read
only once, and the value of data area is changed, will a file update
from a job which starts after the data area change read the data area

As long as the jobs starts after the change, yes.
