There's a big difference between "panic" and "reboots and comes

There is? Why?
panic(9) prints stuff, optionally drops into a debugger, and then
cpu_reboot(9) optionally unmounts file systems, runs shutdown
hooks, prints a message, and halts or reboots.
It's dropping into a debugger that provides the most significant

also you have more control over the boothowto flags if you call
