Huh?  There is no such thing required.

$ gpart show
=>      40  52428720  vtbd0  GPT  (25G)
        40       512      1  freebsd-boot  (256K)
       552   4194304      2  freebsd-swap  (2.0G)
   4194856  48233904      3  freebsd-ufs  (23G)

That specific machine has been up for 449 days at this point... it's
running 11.1, but still....  ;-)
