When using any tool you need to understand the limitations of that tool. One of the major limitations of this kind of pattern recognition "security" tool is that they just aren't very accurate, and have lots of false positives. So you may have a "LKM trojan" (even though FreeBSD doesn't use "LKM"s, it uses "KLD"s ;), or (more likely) you might have just encountered a poorly specified search pattern in the tool.
