When starting LVM at boot, it prints warnings like

 File descriptor 7 () leaked on lvm invocation. Parent PID 122:

This is because it is paranoid and checks for open filedescriptors
when started and emits warnings if any other than filedescriptor
0,1 or 2 are open.

Other filedescriptors however are used by our rc framework to enable
output postprocessing and these are passed to the individual rc scripts
which is a questionable thing to do.

The rc framework allows rc scripts that are not executed in a subshell
but sourced, it's probably impossible to sanitize the filedescriptors
for these scripts.

Put lvm=YES in rc.conf and boot.

Either appease lvm to turn off the warnings or close filedescriptors
in rc.subr when calling into rc scripts.
