I forgot to add my rc.conf. Maybe that will give a clue?

I checked booting with the above rc.conf that fails the second and third
wlan, even if I then login and ifconfig destroy the wlans and run my
script to configure them, they still fail.

So why would the creation and configuration of the wlan interfaces work
if it is not done during the boot, but after multi-user is reached?
