Would be great if you send the patch or issue a bug (and attach the patch).

First startup should take ages especially when the signatures are checked.
A progress message as you proposed is integrated already (since long), and
should update every 50 loaded plugins or so and notify that its done
with "All plugins loaded." (after which all output is dumped to openvasd.d
and you should not see any more messages on stderr).
So, if you start openvasd -d, you see nothing?
Good news from your side,
