How to stop my services from trying to bind to IPv6?

I use the default sshd config file, I'd rather not maintain one.
As for my named.conf, I haven't enabled no IPv6 setting there either.
Perhaps an ipv6_enable="NO" in rc.conf will do the trick?
Honestly though, shouldn't FreeBSD assume I don't use IPv6 unless I
tell it that I do?
