Unless I mistaken of course, the question of the OP is:
does FreeBSD support "software suspend" as for Linux, and this
means for me: "does FreeBSD support a generic mechanism in
under to suspend to disk without support from BIOS (or with very
minimal help from the BIOS)".
The answer to this question is no.
Of course FreeBSD support suspend to disk via APM or via ACPI S4bios,
but this is another story.
