Multiple master processes per reloading

Per my understanding, the reloading would only replace the old workers with
new ones, while during testing (constantly reloading), I found the output of
"ps -ef" shows multiple masters and shutting down workers which would fade
away very quickly, so I guess the master process may undergo the same
Could some experts help confirm this?

What's strange is that in a production env, those masters and shutting down
workers keep stay there forever and never go away. in this env, there is a
running script that would reload the nginx every 5 minutes.
Any idea what's going on here?

Thanks and Regards,
