While I do not object to the change proposed in review D42765, I think the
issue may be that you probably used the files from
FreeBSD-13.2-RELEASE-amd64-bootonly.iso or FreeBSD-13.2-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso
to populate your /tftpboot/FreeBSD/install directory? (see

These two images do not contain a /rescue indeed since
given it is a read-only media, it should not "need" a /rescue.

If you untar base from:
into /tftpboot/FreeBSD/install, you'll notice that it indeed contains /rescue.

All that said, if that solves the problem, we should perhaps clarify the
handbook to instruct the users on how to populate the /install directory, as
having rc.initdiskless use the tar binary from /rescue may have its advantages
as well.
