By scripts, I assume you mean files generally, since only one file in 
/etc/security is actually a script.  Right now, those files are on the vendor 
branch in contrib/openbsm/etc, since they are distributed as part of OpenBSM. 
I think merging $FreeBSD$ strings into the OpenBSM distribution probably 
doesn't make sense.  So it comes down to how and whether we want to maintain 
local modifications (such as adding $FreeBSD$).  My hope has been to avoid 
requiring any FreeBSD src changes to files in OpenBSM, given that I am the 
vendor, and can loop changes back, but obviously $FreeBSD$ is a bit of a 
special case.  How do we normally handle this sort of thing?  It looks like 
for OpenSSL and OpenSSH, at least, we opt to take files off the vendor branch?
