OI know that in FreeBSD I should not edit directly, but instead
should edit the appropriate .mc file, and remake the .cf file. But I cannot
find the documentation as to how to set this particular sendmail macro from
the .mc file

Can anyou give me some guidance here?

/usr/share/sendmail/cf/README documents what you can put into a sendmail .mc
file.  The specific thing you want is:

define(`confDOMAIN_NAME', `$')dnl

Add this to the `hostname`.mc file, and then just type 'make' in /etc/mail to 
generate a .cf file from it.  To generate and install that .cf file and restart 
sendmail to use it all in one, just do:

# make all install restart
