FreeBSD's default sshd configuration has:

    UseDNS yes

It instructs sshd to look up the remote host name and check that the resolved
host name for the remote IP address maps back to the very same IP address.

In the meantime, a potential workaround, could be to set:

    UseDNS no

which is the default setting upstream. However, only addresses and not host
names may be used in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys from and sshd_config Match Host

I will, eventually, test the possibility of adding a few


to auth.c (especially under remote_hostname()).
