newsyslogd / pflogd : daily logfiles for pf

I'm running PF on some FreeBSD 11.x installs and I would very much like
to have daily logfiles containing the entries that land up in the pflog
device. I'm having trouble switching from "max size" rotation to "once a
day, regardless of size" rotation.
My pflog entry in /etc/newsyslog.conf looked like this:
/var/log/pflog 600 3 100 @T00 JB /var/run/pflogd.pid
and after my attempted change now looks like this:
/var/log/pflog 600 30 * @T00 JB /var/run/pflogd.pid
but no new /var/log/pflog.0.bz2 files are created anymore. If I run the
newsyslog binary manually like this :
then the /var/log/pflog.* are created / rotated.
Could somebody perhaps shed some light on what I'm doing wrong here?
Any help appreciated!
