HI, I'm trying to use TRACE target of raw table but It doesn't work

It's a CentOS 6.2 with kernel 2.6.32-220.7.1.el6.x86_64.

 lsmod | egrep -i  "raw|trace|log"
iptable_raw             2264  1
ip_tables              17831  4
xt_TRACE                1060  1
ipt_LOG                 5845  5
ipt_ULOG               10765  11
dm_log                 10122  2 dm_mirror,dm_region_hash
dm_mod                 81596  14 dm_mirror,dm_log

The problem is TRACE target maches but it isn't logging anything....

Chain PREROUTING (policy ACCEPT 380796 packets, 194521672 bytes)
    pkts      bytes target     prot opt in     out     source
       6      360 TRACE      tcp  --  *      *
A.B.C.D     tcp dpt:443

if I use the LOG target it WORKS, but TRACE it's better for debugging, am I
doing something wrong or this CentOS release has no full support for this

Thanks in advance!
