No, things are exactly the same in this regard in 9.x. Yes, 'mount -p'
shows you the fstab(5) file corresponding to the current state of your
system. Although nowadays you wouldn't necessarily want to have
/etc/fstab containing exactly that data -- ZFS has a lot of this stuff
built in, and jails etc. are frequently configured using a separate
I don't understand what you are asking for, if it isn't the mount
options in the 4th column of the fstab(5) file.
If you mean "what mount options are available to use," then I suggest
reading the mount(8) man page (for the generic options, and those
relating to UFS) and the filesystem specific versions such as
mount_cd9660, mount_nfs, mount_nullfs etc. To see what mount related
man pages are available:
man -k mount_
