Yes, but does not fix the underlying problem.

r242184 added setfib(1) support to rc.subr and assumes, that any
non-blank value is a FIB number.

But the RC script for apache sets "apache_fib" to "NO" if it does
not contain a FIB number.

This leads to a comamnd "setfib -F NO apache" and setfib complains
about the non-zero value.

I assume that the apache RC script should be modified to not pass
apache22_fib="NO" for the case of no FIB. OTOH, the code in rc.subr
could be changed to accept "NO" as equivalent to an empty value of
the FIB variable.

Setting "apache22_fib=0" just hides the problem. It does not harm,
but the default of not specifying a FIB should just work.
