procd not setting pgrp (process group)

while investigating an htop issue
i found out that procd isn't setting the pgrp of his child (call to setpgrp/setpgid/setsid)

I've checked and it's the only init with pgrp == 0 and child with pgrp == 0 (busybox init, systemd init, ..., all have pgrp == 1, and child pgrp == pid)

I have no idea of the possible side effects of this settings, reading wikipedia it's related to signal distribution, so i think it should be set, but i wouldn't mind some help

Thanks in advance
