Niets te danken ;)

I didn't know that you were using Virtualbox. Since I've never used it
before, I don't know how that would affect the config loadup.

After re-re-reading your original post, I figured you must of had the
rc.conf setting in place, or else it wouldn't have worked in the first
place.

Out of curiosity, does re-running `dhclient` rectify the situation when
moving between different networks, without a cold start?

fwiw, other than a couple of lab boxes, I don't have any FBSD boxes that
are on DHCP...
