I do not belive that the values of that variables are in upper case

To see what is happening in devd, try this

Create the file /usr/local/etc/devd/printvar.conf with

=============================
#
# Run devd in debug mode
#  devd -Dd
#

attach 0 {
        device-name "umass[0-9]+";
        
action "/usr/local/etc/devd/printvar.sh '$bus' '$cdev' '$cisproduct' '$cisvendor' '$class' '$device' '$device-name' '$function' '$manufacturer' '$notify' '$product' '$serial' '$slot' '$subvendor' '$subdevice' '$subsystem' '$system' '$type' '$vendor'";
};
=============================

Also, creat the file Create the file /usr/local/etc/devd/printvar.sh

=============================
#!/bin/sh
{
  echo "$# parametros"
  echo $@
  echo "bus          = $1"
  echo "cdev         = $2"
  echo "cisproduct   = $3"
  echo "cisvendor    = $4"
  echo "class        = $5"
  echo "device       = $6"
  echo "device-name  = $7"
  echo "function     = $8"
  echo "manufacturer = $9"
  shift 9
  echo "notify       = $1"
  echo "product      = $2"
  echo "serial       = $3"
  echo "slot         = $4"
  echo "subvendor    = $5"
  echo "subdevice    = $6"
  echo "subsystem    = $7"
  echo "system       = $8"
  echo "type         = $9"
  shift 1
  echo "vendor       = $9"
} > /tmp/VariablesDevd.txt
=============================

Check the content of /tmp/VariablesDevd.txt
