A question about modifying autoboot delay time

My FreeBSD is running on VMware virtual machine. I modify /boot/loader.conf file
to prolong autoboot delay time:
# cat /boot/loader.conf
After rebooting, I find the prompt is still default value (10s), and the screen looks
like hung (The image is here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NanXiao/FreeBSD-101-Hacks/master/images/boot_kernel.JPG).
But the actual delay time seems taking effect, about passing one minute, the system boots up.
Is it a bug of running FreeBSD on VMware virtual machine? Could anyone help to explain it?
Thanks very much in advance!
