Nginx 1.17.6 ignores kill -HUP

I have an istallation of nginx in a FreeBSD PPC64 server (running
11.3 RELEASE) which seems to ignore kill -HUP: it doesn't reload
configuration and doesn't log the fact that kill has reached it, even
if I set the debug level in error_log to "debug".

nginx -V says:

Have I missed something?
where should I look to see what happens?
