  And not the virtual servers.  See raddb/sites-enabled/

  It says that in the debug output, too.  Now search the *rest* of the
debug output for references to "ippool".  There aren't any.

  i.e. the "modules/ippool" file is read, but the module is *not*

  That's because the module isn't referenced in any virtual server.
