This is likely just freebsd-update waiting to establish a connection. I believe
that is 60s by default which would add up with multiple attempts. Maybe there
is a way to shorten the TCP connect timeout in this case to prevent the boot

It looks like update uses fetch which appears to honor the following ...

-T seconds, --timeout=seconds
    Set timeout value to seconds.  Overrides the environment
    variables FTP_TIMEOUT for FTP transfers or HTTP_TIMEOUT for
    HTTP transfers if set.

Maybe that means that the init script could export an HTTP_TIMEOUT value < 60?
