To start a service which isn't enabled in rc.conf, it's better to use
From the 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_*

performs all the other prerequisite tests.
