Most ports that have daemons will have startup scripts in 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/.  Most of those scripts will include comments about 
what switches are required in /etc/rc.conf to start the daemon.  Look 
there first for instructions.

If you look at the mysqld startup script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d, you will 
notice that it says use msyqld_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf.
