Yes; the network script will read /etc/ifconfig.* in alpabetical order.
To fix this use in /etc/rc.conf:
auto_ifconfig=NO                                # config all avail. interfaces
net_interfaces="epic0 vlan0 bridge0" # used only if above is NO

(remplace epic0 with the real name of your physical network interface)
