I tried to reproduce this problem, but couldn't.

I created the jail with the command:

# jail -c path=/disk-huge/jail host.hostname=testjail ip4=inherit 

Logged into the jail in a normal way:

jexec 231 /bin/sh

Compiled a program, ran it with profiling, then printed the profile 
without seeing a problem like you described.

My jail:

FreeBSD testjail 12.2-STABLE FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE #0 r369528M: Mon Mar 29
