It certainly seems that way. I didn't think it was that long ago that
this particular issue was sorted out though (and I thought it was on
current-users too, though I can't be bothered to go check! :-)

Actually they could learn the same from rc.shutdown(8) in -current too! :-)
2. Invoke rcorder(8) to order the files in /etc/rc.d/ that have a
``shutdown'' keyword (refer to rcorder(8)'s -k flag), reverses that
order, and assigns the result to a variable.
