Then you did something wrong, or you're confusing devfs.rules
Quote from the manpage:
"The devfs.rules file provides an easy way to create and apply
devfs(8) rules, even for devices that are not available at boot."
The rules take effect whenever a new node (devide) appears,
even after devfs was mounted.
