My guess is that when you started dhcpd first time, it copied
"/etc/subnets" as instructed - but next time it didn't because
/etc/subnets already exists in /var/lib/dhcp.
Try setting DHCPD_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES="/etc/dhcpsubnets/*" and see if
that does it.
Alternatively, unset that, and create a symlink so that
/etc/dhcpsubnets is a symlink to /var/lib/dhcp/etc/subnets. Ie, you
edit the file 'in place' where dhcpd is looking for them, but have an
easy to remember pointer to them.
