I am not aware of any linux distribution that comes with debug enabled by default, even on RC releases.
It seems that this approach (debug by default) is welcome to help solve problems that might appear, but I would be happy if these benchmarks were made without such config (debug) enabled.

As such, shipping FreeBSD releases with INVARIANTS disabled is a mistake and any benchmarks done without INVARIANTS enabled will fail to reflect most reasonable real world use-cases.
