This sounds like a second in a month problem with /usr/home not linked
to /home on 13.0-RC and an upcoming surprise on 13.0-RELEASE :-)

I have filled a bug for this:

I would suggest to fill a bug / feature request (see example above) as
well here. FreeBSD Bugzilla is the best place to talk with developers
/ maintainters when it comes to a particular problem :-)
