[Bug 262461] bsdinstall: After manual partitioning the disk, installer installs "ZFS on root" directly on the pool not under separate ZFS datasets

For one reason or another I was able to reshape the datasets of "remake" pool
(populated from "root" pool via "cp") into a more saner "ZFS on root" setup. I
also got rid of "root" pool that was installed by the installer.

After moving "remake/newroot/usr-local" from "remake" pool to another pool
without "bootfs" property & moving it again back to "remake" pool, "bectl" does
not list as one of the boot environments anymore.

Also solved, I think, the mystery of a ZFS dataset being mounted at "/" even
though assigned property is different: it was specified in
{root,remake/newroot/base}:/etc/fstab. Removing it allowed
"remake/newroot/base" dataset to be mounted at "/".

Even though I had found workarounds to get a saner "ZFS on root" setup from
originally installed everything in "root" pool (no dataset hierarchy exists
when installing in "Manual" mode on a particular partition), original issue
