graphics/zathura: doesn't automatically reload.

I am using editors/neovim + vimtex with graphics/zathura (graphics/zathura-pdf-mupdf) to preview the pdf file. It is working as expected but zathura does not automatically reload the view when that is updated by latexmk, what runs in continuous mode by vimtex - I need to issue Shift + R manually to have the file updated.

That does not work with default latexmk configuration neither with these:
$pdf_viewer = 'zathura';
$pdf_update_method = 2;
EDIT: also does not work using graphics/zathura-pdf-poppler inestead.

Any idea what is (not) going on?
