I'm booting a FreeBSD 10.2 kernel with a new boot1.efi bootloader.
Maybe there is really something in the kernel that is required.

I tested it now with a completely fresh installed 10.3-beta2 image and
there it works.
So I will wait till 10.3 is available via freebsd-update to test it with
my setup.

The only difference I saw was that my efi partion has 128MB and the
standard efi partition the installer created 800KB.
Could this be a problem of disk-size (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32...)?
