Custom field changed event handler?

I see hundreds of *Event classes in com.atlassian.jira.event, but through trial and error, I observe that events in com.atlassian.jira.event.fields.layout or com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.field don’t seem to be handled, at least not via the @EventListener pattern described here.

This page is linked to from that tutorial, but I don’t see anything associated with custom fields.

If I try to handle AbstractEvent, the parent of IssueEvent, nothing is handled when custom fields are updated.

Is there a different type of event that can be used here? Can those other custom field-related classes be handled somehow using a different mechanism?

Thanks.
