you have misinterpreted the meaning of the KILL expression

if you reread the docs:
...you will see that the KILL expression manages the transition
between preempting (Vacating) and preemptiong (Killing). to be used it
must frst get intot he preempting (vacating) state.

This can happen through many reasons detailed:


the one you likely want is PREEMPT (you may keep your existing KILL or
just make it TRUE)
