repeated segfault of daemon after ~245 minutes of OS uptime, or multiples thereof (12.0Rp1 amd64)

Does this rather unusual duration remind somebody of some periodic counter cycle? I'm stumped. AFAICT the failure is periodic based on the host OS boot time, and *not* the runtime, but I'm not 100% sure on that yet.

Per subject, round about 245 minutes after host boot, and repeatedly after that at the same interval (+- a couple of minutes), a jailed erlang runtime (databases/couchdb2) segfaults, on multiple systems. All are low end 8 core non-HT x86_64 arch atom CPUs C2750 @ with 8GB RAM, and are well within normal limits for cpu, ram, disk io. 

I've looked at 245 minutes in hex & binary, as minutes, seconds, milli- and micro-, and none of these resemble some sort of nibble-aligned counter that might conceivably overflow.

All ports are built via a custom poudriere stack, albeit not very far off standard ports - we need a handful of custom settings and packages. URL below has details.

sysctls are quite a few but are largely identical to those I run elsewhere, admittedly on larger boxes.

networking is internet facing BGP and a private fc00/7 IPv6 vpn for the cluster nodes to communicate.

Also, my lldb skills are limited, if somebody can recommend a resource to bone up that would be awesome.
