hello there. i think this conversation can be closed right now. when i try
to look at dmesg output:

Starting pflog.
May 14 16:09:53 pflogd[471]: [priv]: msg PRIV_OPEN_LOG received
Enabling pf.
no IP address found for securehost.xxx.xx
/etc/pf.conf:9:
could not parse host specification

pfctl:
Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded

which securehost.xxx.xx cannot be resolved while booting because no dns
server was contacted. when i remove the hosts from pf.conf then pf is loaded
when booting.

thank you for now
