Is this something we (as consumers of FreeBSD) need to be aware of?

Press Delete/F1 during boot, select Advanced -> Trusted Computing. 
Change TCG/TPM Support to "No".  But according to Cory Doctorow, that's 
far too finicky and highly technical 

By the way it's not Microsoft's stuff people would have to break, but 
UEFI. I think secure boot actually makes sense, but preventing users 
disabling it or installing their own keys on ARM platforms is totally wrong.
