The problem is solved. It was stupid, but I thought why should I have to set / in /etc/fstab when the filesystem isn't mounted yet, so the file can't be read. But it seems the kernel reads this file "loader-like" *before* the filesystem is mounted. Considering the above to be correct I can't understand the ability to enter e. g. ufs:/dev/ad0a at "mountroot>" when it doesn't work. But everything is fine now, thank you for your answer.
