To be honest: No.

I really don't understand why portmap is started now, or
a message with something with "portmap" is printed.

Could you set portmap to something "wrong", i.e.  portmap="XXXX"?
You should see a warning at the next boot you did not have before
(WARNING: portmap is not set properly)
