It's a tangent to this thread, but: can you point to anything which
discusses this in more detail?
I've long known that Darwin is 'mostly FreeBSD running on Mach', or that
it has a lot of FreeBSD's userland, or even that Apple have reportedly
contracted folk with FreeBSD kernel knowledge to work on bits of Darwin
(or have ported bits of FreeBSD into Darwin, or something like that).
I'm curious to know more, but details are tantalisingly hard to find.
