Well, no, any more than there is a comprehensive text that will list
every single noise your car might make and what it means.

Right. Sounds like you put inappropriate lines in rc.conf, which is
only supposed to contain variable settings, not actual commands.
Since you didn't show the lines you'd added, we can't suggest the
right way to do it, but look at the if settings in rc.conf(5) and the
Handbook description of configuring networking.
