NUT missing from netgate UI

After installing the nut package from the package manager on a new netgate system with the built-in theme, the NUT service is not available from the Services drop down menu. The service is listed in the Service Status widget on the main Dashboard.

Attempts to access the UI directly (reverse engineering from an older non-netgate pfsense system) using /status_nut.php result in a 404.

I would like to 1) report this a bug, 2) find a workaround to access the NUT status / configuration directly as a workaround.

NUT: nut 2.7.4_7
System: Netgate SG-5100
Version: 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (amd64), FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p10

You just need to reinstall the package. Somehow it isn't fully installed, and there isn't enough information here to speculate as to why.

I've tried uninstalling, then installing, and "reinstalling" without success:

I can provide additional details, but I'm not sure what would be useful ...
