FreeBSD 10.1p10 defaultrouter not working

I am trying to set a default route of 140.142.xyz.129 using the documented method of adding the line below to rc.conf:
defaultrouter = "140.142.xyz.129"
(the .xyz. is to protect the guilty... mainly me). ^_^
After restarting the netif and route services, I still don't see a default route being set.
netstat -r shows:
Destination Gateway Flags Netif Expire
localhost link#7 UH lo0
140.142.xyz.128/25 link#8 U lagg0
140.142.xyz.141 link#8 UHS lo0
no default route is assigned...
No logs of interest show up in messages, security, or dmesg.today
The pertinent section of rc.conf looks like:
#create a LACP aggregate interface for the native 1G NICS
ifconfig_lagg0="laggproto lacp laggport bce0 laggport bce1 140.142.xyz.141/25"
This should all be good according to the FreeBSD handbook, but it does not work.
I can manually set the default route using "route add default 140.142.xyz.129", but although the route is now listed, it does not work.
If I comment the "ifconfig_lagg0" line, a default route does show up as expected, so this seems to be related to an incompatibility between a
aggregate interface and a "defaultrouter" line in rc.conf. Either will work by themselves, but not both in the same rc.conf.
Any wisdom you would be willing to share would be much appreciated...
