That only stops making a copy of it from the MFS root onto the installed
system. The entry in the init path is to allow the MFS root to boot during an
install. If you go grab the mfsroot from 8.2-RELEASE and mount it via
mdconfig you will find that it has no /sbin/init file. Instead, it uses
/stand/sysinstall as its init.
