For me, the config works fine, and lists
. IN forward 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.2
com. IN forward 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.2

For you this does not work?  Are you changing the correct config file
(on some systems you can pick the wrong one)?  If you start unbound with
(high) verbosity, it'll print the forward zones that are configured at
startup to the (sys-)log.

Best regards, Wouter
