There is *no* exit path from the PG server that does not spit out an
error message someplace.  Re-examine the logging setup.  I don't know
how FreeBSD's package sets it up exactly, but there have been packages
in the past that just sent the postmaster's stderr to /dev/null :-(.
See here for some documentation about the settings that determine where
messages go:
