Yes, but if I specify a differen number, like
this should be different. Now this could lead to the conclusion, that 
nginx is not reading that file, but nginx -t clearly says so. Also,
if I introduce syntactic errors in that file, nginx complains.

As Igor Sysoev suggested earlier
the worker_connection parameter might not be related, since also cache 
manager and loader use connections.
If these are hard coded to a max of 512, this might be the cause: there 
are exactly 1002 vhosts which each listen on a different port. Now its 
not 1024, which would be 512*2, but may be there is some overhead which 
makes me come to this limit?
If my thinking is correct (?), is there a way to overcome this limit? 
(other then using just one port for ssl ... it would mean using 
different ip addresses, which would have the same effect, I guess?)

Any thoughts on this are welcome.
