Given this hardware specification for the SYS-5027R-WRF:
2x SATA 3.0 ports (6Gbps)
4x SATA 2.0 ports (3Gbps)
4x SATA ports (3Gbps) via SCU
I infer that the four ada0-ada3 devices are connected via SATA
notwithstanding the IDE nomenclature used for the device names and
that the the four da0-da3 devices are connected via SAS through the
SCU given the SCSI nomenclature used for their device names.
Since the four SCU devices are 3Gbps I speculate the the four SATA
devices are also connected at 3Gbps. So, what would the two 6Gbps
ports be used for?
