If I remember correctly iocage jails are based on zfs and the
methodology employed is totally different that the one used in ezjail
You may want to check out qjail, it also has option to auto install
pkg's listed in a flat file as well as a few other methods to accomplish
the same thing and is UFS based. No mater which jail tool you use,
changing from one to another is going to require a complete re-creation
of your jail(8) environment.
