Yes those are specific to PC-BSD. I've not put any formal docs up yet,
but here's some details:

fastboot_enable - If set to YES, will only start the services listed in
fastboot_earlyrc before showing a login prompt.

fastboot_earlyrc - List of service files to start before showing a login
prompt. (Dependencies started automatically)

/var/log/rc_delay.log - Output of services started in the background

Mods are contained in /etc/rc && /etc/rc.delay
