As the nvidia kernel module is part of a port/package, I suspect that
this is more of a "ports" issue than a "stable" issue; in particular, if
the version of the nvidia-driver you're using is sufficiently recent,
you may find a recent ports/UPDATING entry relevant:

  AFFECTS: users of x11/nvidia-driver
  AUTHOR: c...@freebsd.org

  The NVidia driver has been updated to version 367.35.  Starting with
  version 358.09, new kernel module was added, nvidia-modeset.ko.  This
  new driver component works in conjunction with the nvidia.ko kernel
  module to program the display engine of the GPU.

  Users that experience hangs when starting X11 server, or observe

        (II) NVIDIA(0): Validated MetaModes:
        (II) NVIDIA(0):     "NULL"

  messages in their /var/log/Xorg.0.log file should replace ``nvidia''
  with ``nvidia-modeset'' in /boot/loader.conf or /etc/rc.conf files,
  depending on how they prefer to load NVidia driver kernel module.
