From the periodic script here are all the parameters:

: ${security_status_pkgaudit_enable:=YES}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_period:=daily}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_quiet:=YES}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_chroots=$pkg_chroots}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_jails=$pkg_jails}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_jails_ignore+=""}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_expiry:=2}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_expiration:=YES}
: ${security_status_pkgaudit_deprecation:=YES}
