Definitely not a good idea to use that as a model:

man rc.sendmail

             (str) If set to ``YES'', run the sendmail(8) daemon at
             boot time.  If set to ``NO'', do not run a sendmail(8)
daemon to
             listen for incoming network mail.  This does not preclude a
             sendmail(8) daemon listening on the SMTP port of the
             interface.  The ``NONE'' option is deprecated and should
not be
             used.  It will be removed in a future release.

Yes/no options should just be yes/no.
