It does more, it will force the script to run even if a daemon is
running. What OP is looking for is 'one' prefix:
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/script onestart
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/script onestop
After rc.subr(8) manpage:
force Skip the checks for rcvar being set to ``YES'', and
sets rc_force=YES. This ignores argument_precmd
returning non-zero, and ignores any of the required_*
tests failing, and always returns a zero exit status.
one Skip the checks for rcvar being set to ``YES'', but
performs all the other prerequisite tests.
