Ahh, yes.  Sorry this tripped you up.

boot1.efi finds the first available UFS filesystem and loads loader.efi from
there.  You can skip boot1.efi altogether if you like, and just but loader.efi
and the .4th and config files in your EFI system partition, but you'll then
need to explicitly set currdev to load the kernel.
