--- Comment #3 from Jamie Landeg-Jones <jamie@catflap.org> ---
powerd_flags are still used.

The line: command_args="${powerd_flags}"

was removed as it's redundant - The rc subsystem automatically sets
command_args to {progname}_args

You only need to use this if setting the args from another program, eg:


# uname -a
FreeBSD catflap.dyslexicfish.net 13.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE #0
releng/13.0-n244733-ea31abc261f: Fri Apr  9 04:24:09 UTC 2021    
root@releng1.nyi.freebsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/amd64.amd64/sys/GENERIC  amd64
# grep powerd /etc/rc.conf
powerd_flags="-b boo"
# service powerd start
Starting powerd.
powerd: bad option: -b boo
/etc/rc.d/powerd: WARNING: failed to start powerd
