Sorry guys for the brakeage, but the problem is more complex.

What you see is actually bug in how sysinstall creates partitions.
Normally, bsdlabel(8) puts first partition at offset 16. Sysinstall
however puts first partition at offset 0. There are much more problems
because of this and this is one of them - glabel finds UFS magic on
slice, because both slice and partition start at the same offset.

If I backout this change, glabel/ufs cannot be used for file systems
created with -s option. If I leave the change, glabel/ufs won't detect
UFS file system on a first partition created by sysinstall...

Ehh, I'll back it out of course. God, why sysinstall cannot just die?
