Including sections into config.user.php

I am using php in my configs, ie:
$date is previously defined: $date=date('Y-m');
"path" : "\/var\/log\/<?php echo $date; ?>\/control.log",

The built in config looks like it's only for pure json, I added this to the config.user.php file:
        "files": {
<?php foreach (glob("config.user.php.d/*.php") as $file) include $file; ?>

I see the included files show up in the dropdown (with php obviously being interpreted as the date is in the title), however When I select it I get the message "File ID control2 does not exist, please review your configuration file and stop playing!". Any idea why?

    I was able to get it working by using the full path on the glob:

    <?php foreach (glob("/var/www/html/*.php") as $file) include($file); ?>

    The strange part is with the relative path it obviously opened it because it appeared in the menu, but it gave the File ID control error.
