It is only logged if ISC_PLATFORM_USETHREADS. I see you configured with 
--enable-threads, but also verify that is defined in 
lib/isc/include/isc/platform.h. Also make sure that you are testing the 
same named that you built and installed from source.

And make sure your logging for the "general" category and "info" level is 
really logged and look at the correct destination for it.

By the way, 9.6.0 rndc status will report the details, for example:
CPUs found: 2
worker threads: 2
