By default, there IS login class "default" in our /etc/login.conf with 0644 umask value.

Our ftpd applies -u and by default instantly overrides it with login class setting.

You should add your own login class to /etc/login.conf with 0111 value
then run "cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf" and "pw usermod ftpusername -L ftploginclass"
