no it doesn't. "pfctl -e" ENABLES PF.
"pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf" actually loads the rules.

if you haven't loaded the rules (as shown above), true.
If you are manually starting PF, it requires two steps, enabling and
loading. Either can be done without the other. Enable with no rules,
default "pass all" takes effect. Load rules without enabling, you get
to see if your rules load nicely, but no action takes place.

unfortunately, your statements below indicate to me you are looking in
the wrong places, so I'm not going to believe you yet.

Sounds like either a missunderstanding on your part or maybe an improper
upgrade (i.e., didn't properly upgrade the /etc/ files).
If you really believe it isn't that, provide a much better report, and
watch for messages during boot (these are never logged in dmesg).
