Moreover, when I checked logs written by VBoxManage from this rc script 
I found:

00:00:00.152123 nspr-2   Loading settings file 
"/root/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml" with version "1.12-freebsd"
00:00:03.974933 nspr-2   VDInit finished
00:00:09.190551 Watcher  ERROR [COM]: aRC=E_ACCESSDENIED (0x80070005) 
aIID={3b2f08eb-b810-4715-bee0-bb06b9880ad2} aComponent={VirtualBox} 
aText={The object is not ready}, preserve=false

Anyway I found how I can make interface working during the boot. 
Duplicating interface configuration in /etc/rc.conf gives system hints 
on how to complete interface initialization. Everything (named, inetd, 
other daemons listening on virtual interface) now works correctly for me.

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.
