Yeah apologies, you're right, it's not the same bug. However, the fix
is still wrong.
The correct fix is to put the sample fxp line a comment.

The reason your fix is wrong is because get_if_var() is supposed to
give the default value only if the variable it's looking for is unset.
If it is set it is supposed to give you whatever value it's set to. In
the fxp0 case, it is erroneously set to null (i.e ""), so checkyesno()
correctly complains that it is set to an improper value (which it is).
So, what you should do is back your fix out and comment out the fxp0
line in /etc/defaults/rc.conf.
