Yes, there's a limitation of smf to inherit some properties, especially
property group. I once asked this question in the smf mailling alias.

Ideally, uses can simply run:

     # svccfg -s console-login add vt8
     # svccfg -s console-login:vt8 setprop ttymon/device="/dev/vt/8"

But currently users have to manually add ttymon property group and
set properties after adding an instance.
