vnets are not yet supported by the legacy jail management framework
and will not.
The plan is to have something different for when vimages are no longer
"experimental" (tech preview, ... call it what you like to and what
sounds good;).  Ideally for 8.2 but that's just a wild handwaving.

I have some uncommented old notes lying around here:

The current ones are actually a lot more complex and no longer good
examples.  Rather than using "persist" you can still give a command to
start a jail starting all the rc framework etc. in it.
