So first of all, welcome to the FreeBSD world. :)

By default our ports system does not install things in /opt, our default 
installation path for 3rd party software is /usr/local.  So in regards 
to your question, most ports do actually come with sample configuration 
files, which can usually be found in /usr/local/etc/.

If you install a port or package and you aren't sure where it installed 
the files you can do (for exapmle) 'pkg_info -L torrentflux*' and it 
will print the list for you.

There is no question that there is a learning curve when moving from one 
platform to another, but a lot of us have administered both FreeBSD and 
Linux systems so if you have questions, just ask.

hope this helps,
