Same thing with "NONE" instead of "NO", moreover `man sendmail.rc` says

             (str) If set to ``YES'', run the sendmail(8) daemon at system
             boot time.  If set to ``NO'', do not run a sendmail(8) daemon to
             listen for incoming network mail.  This does not preclude a
             sendmail(8) daemon listening on the SMTP port of the loopback
             interface.  The ``NONE'' option is deprecated and should not be
             used.  It will be removed in a future release.
