It is turned on *IF* you say so during the install.  What does or does
not run by default is actually determined by /etc/defaults/rc.conf.
/etc/rc.conf is an override file, if you will.

My guess here is that if you choose not to use the "internet super
server" during the installation, it alters the rc.conf located in
/etc/defaults rather than adding a line in /etc/rc.conf to disable
inetd.
