I'm no HLS expert, but possibly, you need to set the flag
"split_by_time" for "hls_time" to take effect. (Just guessing.)
$ ffmpeg -h muxer=hls
-hls_flags <flags> E....... set flags affecting HLS playlist and media file generation (default 0)
split_by_time E....... split the hls segment by time which user set by hls_time
