At shutdown FreeBSD runs /etc/rc.shutdown. It seems that this script, by
means of /etc/rc.subr, will iterate all the files in (among others)
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ and call them with the "faststop" argument.

Maybe you could just add a script in there?

(Actually, only files with a "# PROVIDES" line are considered, it seems,
so you should think about that).
