No. It contains defaults, and you should never modify this file.
Overrides (and additions) go in /boot/loader.conf

Sometimes you need to do a sysctl -a and see what tunables are

boot-only. The former should go in /etc/sysctl.conf, and the latter
must go in /boot/loader.conf in order to be meaningful.

man loader.conf
