Yes, with CURRENT and re(4):
fk at africanqueen ~ $pciconf -lv | grep -A 4 re0
re0 at pci0:0:9:0: class=0x020000 card=0x816910ec chip=0x816910ec rev=0x10 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Realtek Semiconductor'
    device     = 'RTL8110SB Single-Chip Gigabit LOM Ethernet Controller'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet
