[syslog-ng] Forwarding system startup messages

I am running syslog-ng 3.6.4 and I have the following destination and log
path configured that forwards all messages to the destination:

destination remote {
    network("remote.example.com" port(514) transport(tcp)
log { source(s_all); destination(remote); flags(flow-control);};

When the system reboots, I see that startup messages from the kernel are
logged into /var/log/syslog.
syslog-ng establishes a connection to the remote destination around 10 sec
after the first message was logged into /var/log/syslog. However, it fails
to forward any message that was logged into /var/log/syslog during the
first 10 seconds even though I have the output buffer and flow control

Is this a bug in syslog-ng or am I missing some configuration steps?
