FreeBSD has somewhat of an exception to this. The feature you're
talking about is called vim modeline, and there's quite a big warning
in the vim port (shown during installation) about modelines causing
historic security problems.
Regardless of that fact, I do use them myself, but I'm selective
about them. I prefer to use .vimrc and set up appropriate AutoCmd
entries depending upon fully-qualified paths for config files.
Take your pick. I just wanted to point out that FreeBSD does
explicitly mention the historic issues with modeline in the port.
