In other words, not from ports? Or if it was from ports, which port?

Yes, but that's not where it should be in FreeBSD, if that's even a
startup script meant for FreeBSD.

For that to work, you'd have to have the (correct) script in

install it from the appropriate port, and the port will install the
right script in the right place.
