Where to find keywords for pkg-plist? (@mode, @group, ...)

Hello there,

The Porter's Handbook really lacks a section to set permissions on
installed files. Some users helped me on IRC to set permissions on a
port pkg-plist but we should add it to the handbook.

Is there a file in /usr/ports/Mk/* that shows all of the @ keywords
that can be used in the pkg-plist?

A simple grep didn't answer me.

For instance, @mode sets the chmod file, @owner the user and such.

Kind regards,

Demelier David
