I think (hope!) that's inaccurate; BIND has in general had working
DNSSEC validation for a very long time.

However, NetBSD 7.0 had a /etc/namedb/bind.keys which only contained
the root DNSSEC key which is now expired (was valid until 11 jan 2019
according to, so
if you start BIND with only the old root key in that file, any
attempts at doing DNSSEC validation will predictably fail.

An updated /etc/namedb/bind.keys from netbsd-7 contains also the new
root key, it was updated on the netbsd-7 branch on 2018-03-10 by the
looks of it.  If this update isn't applied to your configuration,
you'll get the failure described above.

There may of course be other problems causing this failure, but this
particular issue is easiest to sort out first.
