I noticed as well, there is no way to turn off SoftUpdates with
e.g. despite unselecting that option, I ended up with a file system below.
/dev/ada0p3 on / (ufs, local, journaled soft-updates)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local, multilabel)
/dev/ada0p4 on /usr (ufs, local, journaled soft-updates)
/dev/ada0p5 on /var (ufs, local, journaled soft-updates)
In the partition editor, OK and Options both have the same hotkeys (O).
Also if you change from the suggested partition default, it always wants
to add a boot partition even if there is one already there. e.g. go to
guided, delete / and the swap and add some partitions. When you create a
new / it will say it needs a boot partition, but that already exists and
now there will be two.
