man routed

     The routed utility is a daemon invoked at boot time to manage the network
     routing tables.  It uses Routing Information Protocol, RIPv1 (RFC 1058),
     RIPv2 (RFC 1723), and Internet Router Discovery Protocol (RFC 1256) to
     maintain the kernel routing table.

router_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf

this has nothing to do with NAT, btw.
