As the uptime is more than 27 days, I would guess the Tor server
software itself has not been restarted to actually use the updated
version ( and it still running on the old version (
that was installed previously.

I have not worked on macOS services, but as I understand it, executing
`sudo launchctl stop servicename && sudo launchctl stop servicename`
should do the job for restarting the service, and `sudo launchctl
list` should show the list of services so that you can find the
service name itself. Maybe just restarting the box is an easier method
of restarting the Tor service.
