Because it's not an actual device?  :-)

snd0 just creates mixer, sequencer, midi, dsp, etc (see the MAKEDEV script
in /dev).

Does the Linux Flash plugin now how to deal w/ the FreeBSD devices (I know
Linux and FreeBSD devices are not always treated the same as well as the
/proc system)?

There is, I believe, a native a.out version of the plugin for FreeBSD now
in the ports tree.  Might want to give that a try w/ a native Netscape.
