I just enabled some exit ports in my relay so I have this issue fresh in my
mind. If I'm not mistaken, you need to open two of the ports 80, 443 and 6667
to gain the Exit flag, but not having that flag doesn't mean that you're not
an exit (ie. I believe that FAQ to be wrong). Initially I didn't open two of
that three ports but I saw outgoing connections to some of the accepted ports
nevertheless, so I was being an exit node despite not having the flag. Try
waiting some days to see if there's some traffic on port 8333. FWIW I check
outgoing connections using netstat instead of arm :).
