Check your boot log /var/run/dmesg.boot and if your internal PCI
modem is not an winmodem.
When the boot probe process finds a PCI modem it automatically moves
it to sio4 as the dmesg.boot messages shows below.

sio0: <Zoom PCI Modem> port 0xe400-0xe407,0xe000-0xe0ff,
mem 0xe2000000-0xe20000ff irq 3 at device 19.0 on pci0
sio0: moving to sio4
sio4: type 16550A

Sio4 is internal device cuaa4.

pci0: <unknown card> (vendor=0x1106, dev=0x3050) at 7.3

You will get this message if your PCI modem card is a Winmodem. Very
seldom is the PCI modem card physical labeled or marked as a
Winmodem. Read the marketing information on the box your PCI modem
came in, or check out the support web site for the PCI modem's
manufacture to verify it's a Winmodem. If your PCI modem card is am
Winmodem, replace it with a PCI modem card that has onbard DSP and
controller chips.
