I know that this is not a signal but a restart of the service (I use
signals on a regular basis in my code as well).
My understanding is that this is a way to reload the configuration (as
mentioned by Simon) without stopping the service.

Do you mean that the right / only way to increase the serial is by sending
the signal?

I do not think so as it would make hosts management very awkward (one would
need not to forget to send the signal) and
another thread in the past mentioned that the serial is calculated in a
smart way to always reflect changes.
