Here are the sendmail-related lines from the /etc/default/rc.conf from
an oldish 'current' that featured sendmail version 8.12.11:
# sendmail can now be run either as a suid root binary or as a sgid
# smmsp binary. In the former case, you must not have the file
# /etc/mail/submit.cf, otherwise sendmail will behave as if it was
# sgid. This can result in mail not being delivered.
# For those people who wish only to send mail (locally or remotely),
# but not receive mail (via the network) in the sgid case, you must
# also run the sendmail daemon with one of the following two options:
# The smmsp process is a sendmail helper that periodically flushes the
# "client" queue in the sgid case. If you are using sendmail as a
# suid root program, then smmsp is not needed.
sendmail=NO sendmail_flags="-Lsm-mta -bd -q30m"
smmsp=NO smmsp_flags="-Lsm-msp-queue -Ac -q30m"
