You seem to be right that it is being disabled.  I see these messages on 
xl2tpd startup:

: Enabling IPsec SAref processing for L2TP transport mode SAs
: IPsec SAref does not work with L2TP kernel mode yet, enabling 
: setsockopt recvref[22]: Protocol not available
: This binary does not support kernel L2TP

I guess I'll remove it from my configuration.
