No, it's on by default, but there's an early check to determine if the
background check can be run. That depends on whether the partition
has soft-updates turned-on (the default in sysinstall), and whether
soft-updates managed to protect the partition during the shut-down. If
fsck is asking for user input, those checks would have failed.
