SFTP Umask not propagating to sub folder

I was having a hard time setting a Umask for files that were transfered 
via SFTP until Dave Korn kindly pointed me to this link  - 

I made a wrapper that sets the umask to 002 before starting the sftp 
server. Files in the root directory are set with the correct permissions 
but then files in subdirectories are created with permissions of 755 - 
any ideas?
