That's the local_unbound workdir. It's created automatically when the
local_unbound service is started for the first time. You can run
through the initial set up by using the "setup" command for the service.

Unbound is a resolver only, not an authoritative nameserver. Install
BIND, NSD, etc. from ports if you want a nameserver. Unbound does
support local data, though, using the local-zone, local-data, and
local-data-ptr keywords in your unbound.conf.
