The easiest way, if you just wish to change network settings,
is to explicitely jump to that selection:

	# bsdinstall netconfig

This will bring up the "Configuring Network Interfaces" menu.

See "man bsdinstall" for details.

Further information here:

https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/bsdinstall-network.html

Please note that I have never personally used bsdinstall for
that specific task, so I don't know for sure if what you will
see does match the description in the handbook, but common
sense suggests that the installed system will not be wiped.
