I was going to do so, but I don't think this actually affects Debian.

I wanted to be sure before filing a bug with them, so I set up two VMs, 
one with stock Buster and one with stock Beowulf, both installed from 
netinstall images and without a DE. I found that despite the init files 
being identical (confirmed with md5sum) and the versions of both 
packages being 2.7.3-2 (confirmed with dpkg -s smokeping | grep 
Version), the behaviour is not -- the service actually stops correctly 
on Debian and fails to stop on Beowulf. I took a side-by-side screenshot 
showcasing all of this for reference. I can include it if it's deemed 
useful, though I'm not sure it is beyond merely confirming what I just 
wrote.

I am now uncertain how accurate my earlier analysis was given that the 
Debian system worked without my fix. Any suggestions on what else should 
be looked at?
