Well, if you look at /usr/share/examples/bhyve/vmrun.sh, you
will see that byvectl --destroy --vm=xx ; bhyveload; bhyve
is run in a loop.  That loop only terminates of bhyve returns non-zero.

I don't think that this is a very good API, but that's what we have for now.

If there was some way to detect of the bhyve process exited due to
ACPI shutdown or normal reboot, that would be helpful.  That would
help people writing scripts around bhyve.
