start-stop-daemon creates a pid file with the PID of the daemon process
before it actually daemonize itself (fork) :
# ps | grep klogd
  258 root        572 S   /sbin/klogd
  276 root        504 S   grep klogd
# killall klogd
# /sbin/start-stop-daemon --start --make-pidfile --pidfile /root/klogdpid
--exec /sbin/klogd
# cat /root/klogdpid
278
# ps | grep klogd
  279 root        572 S   /sbin/klogd
  282 root        504 S   grep klogd
# /sbin/start-stop-daemon --stop --pidfile /root/klogdpid --exec
/sbin/klogd
no /sbin/klogd found; none killed.

User error:

start-stop-daemon cannot prevent process from daemonizing (and in this
case will think that process exited). You need to prevent that yourself
(e.g. by giving it appropriate command-line option)
