I don't really believe that toor user should be used like that - check the 
handbook for example. You better use normal user or the root itself.
In 8.x the described is a normal behaviour.

Can't log in as toor since package update

I use the toor login on my FreeBSD systems to log in with the korn 
shell.  Since August 22, When I try to log in as toor or even when I try 
to "su - toor", I get logged in as root.  For example:

ushers# ssh -l toor woodstock

woodstock# su - toor

woodstock# who am i

Unfortunately, I haven't tried to log in since a package update I did 
around August 22, so I didn't notice this problem until now.  Does 
anybody have any idea what might be causing this?
