sys/dev/sysmon/sysmon_power.c:sysmonopen_power() calls
sysmon_power_event_queue_flush() on open to flush any existing

I'm not sure why this is done - it's been that way since the
open function existed.

Just for fun, you could try commenting out the call
sysmon_power_event_queue_flush() and see if that give you the
behaviour you want.
