I'm pretty sure you also need to change the kernel config from:

pseudo-device   vnd                     # disk-like interface to files

To something like:

pseudo-device   vnd         12         # disk-like interface to files

Then recompile/reboot.

No, you don't need that. In the olden days, you had:
pseudo-device   vnd         4

which you did need to alter, but since NetBSD 4 this isn't necessary.

Confusingly, but unsurprisingly, vnconfig -l will not list all the potential devices. So creating the device nodes doesn't appear to change anything until you use them.
