Yes, I believe fdisk and bsdlabel both have a limitation at 2TB.

If you partition the disk using GPT instead it should work with large disks.
Unfortunately I don't think sysinstall supports GPT, and most BIOS do
support booting from a GPT partitioned disk, so the boot volume needs
to be smaller than 2TB.
