I have the same problem from some previous versions, I couldn't say which one.
It worked fine in the past. If you are interested I could download the 13.0 and
12.3 installers to check. It happens with memstick and mini-memstick for me.

Bsdinstall recognizes the interface but does not return networks. I change to
the tty and run "ifconfig wlan0 up" then the installer shows the networks on
rescan. It's an old laptop:

$ uname -a
FreeBSD hostname 13.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 13.1-RELEASE
releng/13.1-n250148-fc952ac2212 GENERIC amd64
$ pciconf -lv wpi0
wpi0@pci0:2:0:0:        class=0x028000 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00 vendor=0x8086
device=0x4222 subvendor=0x8086 subdevice=0x1001
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection'
    class      = network
