It's the enforcer which creates the signconf file, so probably you have
it running each hour. What version of openDNSSEC are you running?

Based on the information compiled by Patrik Wallstrom here
if you want to activate a zone for signing immediately, you can call the
enforcerd manually like

ods-enforcerd -1

to have the signconf file created and the keys set for the zone.
