Edit /etc/fstab and add the 'noauto' flag to the appropriate line.
Something like this:
/dev/ad0s2f /usr100 ufs rw,noauto 2 2

You shouldn't need to recreate the disk or partition labels every time
you reboot, unless you are wiping and re-installing most of the disk
If you're using sysinstall(8) to do an automatic install as part of your
netboot process, then as far as I can tell, there's no way using the
scripted interface to tell it to create a UFS partition but not newfs or
mount it -- although that's easy enough using sysinstall interactively.
I'd be thinking more along the lines of ditching sysinstall(8) entirely
for that purpose and using fdisk(8), bsdlabel(8) and newfs(8) directly.
