Turns out, there was an old zfs label AT THE END of the unused 
disk space of the two nvd drives from the original auto-setup.

Why on earth does the 13.2 kernel prefer an incomplete label (label 0/1 were
missing, label 2/3 at the end of the whole disk contained the old information),
when there was a perfectly valid "freebsd-zfs" gpt partition with all
valid labels!? Shouldn't the search path be:
- check partition table
- check every entry of type "freebsd-zfs" for labels
- if nothing found, check whole disk
