Looking at /etc/rc.d/sendmail (under 10.1-R), if you set sendmail_enable 
to "NONE", it will set all 4 variables to "NO" for you:

case ${sendmail_enable} in
[Nn][Oo][Nn][Ee])
         sendmail_enable="NO"
         sendmail_submit_enable="NO"
         sendmail_outbound_enable="NO"
         sendmail_msp_queue_enable="NO"
         ;;
esac
