By default they end up in /var/db/mysql and are named $hostname-bin.###
Also, the information you read online is incorrect. By default, binary logging 
(which are the transaction logs) is disabled. I don't recall whether this is 
a FreeBSD port specific modification.

You can turn it on by putting a my.cnf in /var/db/mysql. Templates named 
my-$size.cnf are in /usr/local/share/mysql and are well-commented.

    and never get to the software part.
