executive answer: I don't know **but** this is not the cause of my issue

ouch!... looking at the console (it's a remote VM so I usually connect
via ssh only, but today I also connected via SPICE):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
zabbix_server [1942]: /root/secrets/zabbix-server-dbpass: [13] Permission denied
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

unfortunately shepherd did not catch this error (due to foreground
mode?) in syslog :-(

I just had to adjust the permissions to allow zabbix (I allowed the
zabbix group to traverse /root/secrets and read the file) to read the
included file

this now works with both zabbix 4.2.0 and zabbix 4.2.7


Thanks! Gio'
