Besides the fact that the authoritative source of information is the  
man-page: the 800.scrub-zfs is handling the defaults internally.

More critical are entries in defaults/periodic.conf which are not  
described in the man-page.

On my -current system:
# for i in $(grep -v '^#' /etc/defaults/periodic.conf | grep = | tail  
+3 | head -94 | cut -d '=' -f 1); do
grep -q $i periodic.txt|| echo $i not in man-page | egrep -v  
daily_status_zfs_enable not in man-page
daily_status_mail_rejects_shorten not in man-page
daily_status_ntpd_enable not in man-page
daily_status_pkg_changes_enable not in man-page
daily_status_security_logdir not in man-page
daily_status_security_chkportsum_enable not in man-page
daily_status_security_ipf6denied_enable not in man-page

periodic.txt was generated via
zcat /usr/share/man/man5/periodic.conf.5.gz | groff -Tascii -man -a >!  


One reason why George Washington
Is held in such veneration:
He never blamed his problems
On the former Administration.
