Don't think so. I remember seeing that problem too when doing some
install tests on kfreebsd.
rsyslog uses several threads and I vaguely remember that on kfreebsd
those were shown as separate processes?!?

rsyslog uses the sendsigs.omit interface to stop as late as possible
during shutdown. My guess is, that /etc/init.d/sendsigs kills those
rsyslog processes aside from the main process that is listed in
Because of that, rsyslog does not properly shutdown.

You might investigate in that area.
