​​I'm not​ sure moving the directive around the same level has any impact
if you don't have another 'gzip' directive there.
Have you checked that there is no gzip at inferior levels (server or
location blocks).
Even better: gzip directive is internally set to 'off'. Check that there is
no 'gzip' usage anywhere in any included file of your configuration (simple
grep) and you'll have the conf you wish.

2nd part:
Check your conf is *really* applied on reload: first, check the syntax with
nginx -t, then monitor the logs when reloading to see any error popping up.
