You can use 'gpart resize' and growfs.
But why do you want to do this with the memstick image? It's for
installing FreeBSD, no?
# mdconfig -t vnode -a -f FreeBSD-11.0-CURRENT-amd64-20150618-r284544-memstick.img
# gpart show md0
=> 3 1470064 md0 GPT (718M)
3 1600 1 efi (800K)
1603 32 2 freebsd-boot (16K)
1635 1466384 3 freebsd-ufs (716M)
1468019 2048 4 freebsd-swap (1.0M)
In this case you first have to remove the swap at the end.
