mysqld resides in /usr/local/libexec, which could be why you didn't find it.
That doesn't really matter because a wrapper is used to start it anyway

When in doubt, take a look at pkg-plist for what gets installed where. Also,
shell scripts for starting/stopping processes can usually be found in the
file/ directory of the port.
