"rcorder /etc/rc.d/* /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*" on the old and new systems and
compare the locations of named vs. local_unbound? Looks like local_unbound
starts a bit earlier as it does not require that the network be up and
running since it is a client-only. But the full unbound does not start
until after logins are enabled at the very end of the process.

So it depends on what capability you are looking for as to whether it
starts earlier or later. (No easy answers here.)
