Yes, the spinoffs are not LISTENing (as you stated), so what's the
point in rereading a config being used for LISTEN sshds?

See the same behaviour in Apache privilege seperation about
graceful restarts. The spinoff httpds do not care for the
new configuration aswell.

Altogether I don't see where this is a vuln-dev?
