No, it's not normal. Please, report it in an explicit way, commands
given and/or changes to rc.conf, loader.conf etc. Try first here
questions@ and then net at .

Nonetheless I see no such behavior on my system. if_lagg loads
automatically when needed(ifconfig lagg create etc).

On 8.0-STABLE if_lagg loads automatically and I think it always
did load automatically, though I am not sure. What's the FreeBSD
version you are working on?
