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

    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.
