> I found the information on this page:

that page refers to freebsd 4.x and you are running 5.x

But looked at my kernel (5.4-stable):

if you want to run the machine without a keyboard at all your setup will
work. just be
sure to tell the bios not to report keyboard errors. otherwise it will
freeze at a message
from your bios telling you it can't find a keyboard. i'm not sure about
keyboards in 5.x but i assume it works. the safest thing to do is just never
plug a keyboard
