It doesn't. UFS/FFS and ZFS expect and assume "perfect" media. It's
up to the drive to transparently remap faulty sectors. UFS used to
have support for visible bad sectors (and Solaris UFS still reserves
space for this, though I don't know if it still works) but the code
was removed from FreeBSD long ago.
AFAIR, wd(4) supported bad sectors but it was removed long ago.
