No, single user mode. Root partition in single user mode can be fsck'd and 
repaired if mounted ro in single user. The system does fsck -p by default, 
which skips partitions marked clean. Since you can shutdown cleanly, nothing 
will happen.
Have a look at /etc/defaults/rc.conf for setting different behaviors by 
overriding the defaults in /etc/rc.conf.
