That's because your kernel (GENERIC?) does not have ipdivert support enabled.
That's not fatal, see later.

At this point, there is still no ipdivert support loaded.

At this point, kernel module ipdivert.ko is loaded.

ipdivert.ko is loaded, hence re-loading firewall rules helps.

Just load ipdivert.ko earlies by means of loader.conf:
echo 'ipdivert_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf
Alternatively, rebuild kernel with options IPFIREWALL and IPDIVERT
