"It does not work for devices plugged in and out after the system is up
and running, e.g. USB devices.  See devfs.rules(5) for setting ownership
and permissions for all device nodes, and usbd.conf(5) for actions to be
taken when USB devices are attached or detached."

I overlooked that for some reason. :(
