At least it is documented in /usr/share/mk/bsd.obj.mk:

# MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX  Specifies somewhere other than /usr/obj to root the object
#               tree.  Note: MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX is an *environment* variable
#               and works properly only if set as an environment variable,
#               not as a global or command line variable!
#               E.g. use `env MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/somewhere/obj make'

Not the most obvious place to look ...
