This is a feature of rcNG -- instead of installing a sample startup file, which you have to copy into place, you instead get the rcNG-ified startup file, which you can turn on and customise by setting variables in /etc/rc.conf I don't think it would be feasible to add the default settings for all of the ports that use rcNG to /etc/defaults/rc.conf -- if you want to keep your ports stuff cleanly separated from the base systems, then add: rc_conf_files="/etc/rc.conf /etc/rc.conf.local /usr/local/etc/rc.ports.conf" to your /etc/rc.conf, and put your ports related settings in there. The default rcNG startup script settings are documented in the scripts themselves. It might be an idea to make such ports register their default settings in /usr/local/etc/defaults/rc.ports.conf (for example) but I'm not entirely convinced that the benefit of doing so outweighs the effort required to set it up.
