You shouldn't need that option, since the default value in
/etc/defaults/rc.conf already includes that directory.
Unless there is another reason...

The information you're giving is perhaps not enough.
Are you sure you have *_enable="YES" in rc.conf for each script you want
to run?
Check rc.conf, rc.conf.local and the scripts, and if you're unable to find
out what's wrong, post them. It may also be useful if you tell us what
version of FreeBSD are you running.
