ACL:s are disabled upon reboot into multi-user

I am trying to enable ACL:s. So I do "shutdown now" to get into single user
mode; I verify the fs is mounted read-only and do "tunefs -a enable
/dev/da1s1a". I "reboot" -> "boot -s" into single user mode and "tunefs -p
/dev/da1s1a" still reports ACLs enabled. So I "reboot" again and let the
boot proceed as normal into multi-user mode. Now "tunefs -p /dev/da1s1a" and
"mount" report ACLs disabled.

Why? I cannot find any tunefs:ing in the startup scripts that may be
responsible. And as far as I can find, there is no mount option to enable
ACLs that I am supposed to put in /etc/fstab.

This is on FreeBSD 5.2-RELEASE, UFS2. The file system in question is the
root file system, if that makes a difference.
