contains machine-specific settings for sites with a common
loader.conf (ex man loader.conf)
contains the default settings and is evaluated prior to loader.conf,

Correct. Note that rc.conf is processed after kernel initialisation,
it is read by rc (and its "sub-scruipts"); if rc isn't run, no attention
is paid to rc.conf's settings.

You can enter the boot loader's dialog facility and check the
variables set or which of them have been passed to the kernel.
