Sorry, I misread, and though you were moving to jails.

This is from ezjail to iocage. Might help.

Yes, I have been moving from iocage to vanilla jails. I find it better suits my use
cases, specifically my FreshPorts jails which contain zfs file systems which it
must occasionally issue a 'zfs rollback'. I also like that my jails start or stop
faster. The additional work I need to do relates to jail creation (creating the
file systems etc). For that, I'm using https://github.com/mkjail/mkjail - in fact,
this morning I am using that to update several jails.

e.g. [dvl@r720-02:~/src/mkjail/src] $ sudo bin/mkjail upgrade -v 12.2-RELEASE -j nginx01

After reading FreeBSD Mastery: Jails I saw how straight forward a jail.conf entry can
be.  https://mwl.io/nonfiction/os#fmjail
