It helped me, to look at /etc/rc.firewall... There are some
comments, that might give u the right hints...

Maybe firewall_enable should be YES?

E. g. my /etc/rc.firewall.bartely file cannot be executed with
sh... But maybe I still did not understand ipfw...

My /etc/rc.firewall.bartely contains rules like:
add pass log all from any to
add deny log all from any to any

And in rc.conf my firewall_type=/etc/rc.firewall.bartleby

And I use default firewall_script=/etc/rc.firewall
