It could be correct if you haven't set up your RAID card correctly. Is
it a hardware or software controlled RAID card. If it's hardware
controlled, you have to set up your RAID configuration in the card so
FreeBSD recognizes it as 1 disk. If it's software controlled, cou can
use something like ccd or vinum.
See this articles for more info on vinum:
Or the RAID section from the trusty handbook:
