You should see these lines in /etc/crontab:
# Perform daily/weekly/monthly maintenance.
1 3 * * * root periodic daily
15 4 * * 6 root periodic weekly
30 5 1 * * root periodic monthly
You can set the MAILTO environment variable in /etc/crontab to mail to
an alternate address if needed.

You should, unless you have a modified /etc/periodic.conf

I'm not sure about tripwire, but it should either be handled by
rc.conf or periodic.conf.
