Bug#996581: Unnecessarry syslog message on rootless exim4 shutdown

Package: exim4-daemon-heavy
Version: 4.94.2-7

When stopping (i.e. with "kill -SIGTERM <exims pid>") rootless exim4 
(run with uid/gid 1234/1234), syslog message is generated

    exim: only uid=0 or uid=101 can use -oP and -oPX (uid=1234 euid=1234 
| 1234)

even if this process was started without -oP/-oPX, with just

    /usr/sbin/exim -bdf -q5m

No such problem with identical exim4 config in buster 
(exim4-daemon-heavy 4.92-8+deb10u6).
