$ man rc.conf
     rc.d(8) scripts that use load_rc_config from rc.subr(8) also support
     sourcing an optional end-user provided per-script override file
     /etc/rc.conf.d/service, (where service is the contents of the name vari-
     able in the rc.d(8) script).  This may contain variable overrides,
     including allowing the end-user to override various run_rc_command
     rc.d(8) control variables, and thus changing the operation of the script
     without requiring editing of the script.
