PrimitivePatch movePoints() didnt move the points

I am trying to use a PrimitivePatch to do some manipulations of point movements on a specific patch(surface). I had the prescibed pointField "pointDisp" and i call the function:
However i checked the points coordinates before and after the movePoints, they are exactly the same.
I looked into the source code of PrimitivePatch.C and found the following code:
template<class Face,template<class> class FaceList,class PointField,class PointType>
void Foam::PrimitivePatch<Face, FaceList, PointField, PointType>::movePoints(const Field<PointType>&)
Pout<< "PrimitivePatch<Face, FaceList, PointField, PointType>::"<< "movePoints() : "<< "recalculating PrimitivePatch geometry following mesh motion"<< endl;
it seems that the movePoints() function actually didn't move the points??? as i understand the clearGeom() function is just to clean the old points info?
I tried to look into other places to get some info of movePoints(), like polyMesh.movePoints(). However i still didn't manage to make things work. Anybody can help for such issue? I would appreciate any ideas.
