Not much. Default FreeBSD install has two more places where one can influence booting with console access - boot blocks and loader. To disable the access to OK prompt of boot blocks create file /boot.config with '-n'. To disable access to loader put autoboot_delay="-1" and beastie_disable=YES into /boot/loader.conf. You can also instead put password=... into it and the loader will then require password to allow access to it.
