I am not sure why the first wiki link is marked as "does not boot".  The
instructions look sane, but maybe there is a mistake in them.  Someone needs to
follow them exactly and to check what happens.

The second link also contains perfectly valid instructions.  It is not
necessary to create a bsdlabel and a partition within it for ZFS, but it can be
done if so desired.

zfsboot(8) is the worst, of course.  It instructs to create a bsdlabel within
the slice, but the subsequent instructions are for installing ZFS to the slice.
 So, the label is useless at best and harmful at worst.

I think that "gpart create -s BSD ada0s1" should be removed from the manual
Everything else looks okay.
