I was playing with dumpconfig and after that added --shh and dumped configuration again to see the differences but there weren't any. My section of the Whisper config is:

[Shh]
MaxMessageSize = 1048576
MinimumAcceptedPOW = 2e-01

Does this mean I need to use --shh always while using --config option, e.g:

geth --shh --config yourfile.toml

That is correct. --shh enables the Whisper protocol to be used on your Geth node. If Whisper is not enabled, none of the configs you've set for it will be active.
