If you are not seeing any changes in HP/MP when equipping these then I'd say it doesn't work. I say this because +Vit on gear adds HP, there should be no reason why these traits wouldn't.
Man.. More broken stuff.
A couple things come to mind, foremost do you know if the stats your boosting with these are capped for your level or not? If your not sure, you could try removing some gear giving you bonuses and see if you gain anything via the traits then.
Second, Stat contributions are still somewhat of a mystery as to exactly how they function. There's a good thread on here that is currently exploring the effect of DEX on accuracy by testing it via Gladiator. His current hypothesis (for melee at least) is, or was last i looked at least, that DEX may be a tiered stat and not a linear one. That is instead of going from 40 to 43 DEX giving you an increase in hit percentage, you might need to hit the next tier at 50 DEX before you see any improvement (numbers totally made up as an example).
There was also a posted reply suggesting that perhaps stats co-contribute to things such a Acc where DEX+PIE might be needed for a full benefit. That however was just speculation and hasn't, to my knowledge, been tested yet.
Unfortunately SE has decided to hide the direct effect of stats on game play for now (I have no idea why personally..) but until the theory-crafters can suss out how these mechanics work we may be left scratching our collective heads when confronted with such questions as the OP.
