Huh, you are right. strings(1) confirmed that the messages could come
from both gptzfsloader as well as from loader. My assumption was that
the version string of the loader would be printed as early as
possible, but now that I've opened stand/i386/loader/main.c, I see
that bootprog_info gets printed very, very late in the process, after
all the GPT and ZFS frobbing was already done, though I don't see an
obvious, definitive call to probing ZFS there and then, it only sets
up some stuff.

Anyway, that mystery will have to wait for some other time
