[SunOS] utmp/motd not updated on SunOS-4.1.3_U1?

I'm finding that login(1) only updates lastlog, leaving utmp and wtmp alone.

This happens when you don't have a ttytab entry for the dial-in device, or if a device has multiple links and the reference in ttytab is not the first one in /dev. See also ttyslot(3V).
