Please see /etc/mail/Makefile:

# ------------------------------------------------------------------------
# This Makefile uses `<HOSTNAME>.mc' as the default MTA .mc file.  This
# can be changed by defining SENDMAIL_MC in /etc/make.conf, e.g.:
#       SENDMAIL_MC=/etc/mail/
# If '<HOSTNAME>.mc' does not exist, it is created using ''
# as a template.
