If that is standard in loader.conf then leave it, I don't have it in 
my.  In my /etc/rc.conf I have:
When I plug in my usb mouse I see the pointer and everything is good.

Check your XF86Config for this:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse0"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option        "Protocol" "auto"
    Option        "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
    Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

The last option enables the scroll on the mouse, for a better internet 
experience. ;-)
