In 1.2, if "-S" is found in bhyve_options, it adds this argument to the guest loader. This is done before choosing between bhyveload/grub2-bhyve and will be supplied to either.
In 1.3 (GitHub only), which has a new wired_memory option, you will need to use this, as the slightly hacky grep to scan bhyve_options for -S and push this through to the loader has been removed.

As far as I'm aware this is not an issue with UEFI as there is now just a single bhyve process (which gets all of bhyve_options) and no separate loader.
