FreeBSD doesn't have runlevels so I'm not sure what you're referring to

Its also known that certain old Linux binaries that accidentally get run
as FreeBSD binaries can call reboot() when trying a Linux SYSV syscall.
If you copied cupsd from a linux box, use brandelf on it to make sure it
gets run under the linuxulator.
