Please use reasonable length lines; don't represent an entire
paragraph as a single very long line. I have re-wrapped your text
to something less than 80 characters per line.

I could understand an error like that for a variable that might be
used as the name of a program instead of as a yes/no switch, but
surely not for all variables, and the square bracket in the error
message is also hard to explain.
Please report the exact error message, and the exact line in
/etc/rc.conf. The name of the variable is important, so please
don't change it to "program".
