Many thanks for this. However, inn2 is not a forked package and Devuan uses
Debian's packages directly without recompilation. In principle, this issue
should be reported to Debian's BTS to be fixed there. Non-systemd init is still
possible in Debian.  You are more likely to get a fix if you can narrow down
the issue in the initscript and/or submit a patch to the Debian maintainer.

Version: 2.6.3-1+deb10u2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I noticed zombie nnrpd processes showing up after restarting inn2 with the
command 'service inn2 restart'. This led to a high number of processes on
a server. Using a 'service inn2 stop' with a bit of a wait followed by
'service inn2 start' made this problem go away.

I suspect something in the init scripts, this being Devuan, but I'm not
sure.
