I think in earlier versions of installers, the installation process used

The installation is already done on the stick, and right now from Linux
host I can see that the partition's Boot flag is set.

Disk /dev/sdb: 14.33 GiB, 15376318464 bytes, 30031872 sectors
Disk model: Cruzer Blade    
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Device     Boot  Start      End  Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/sdb1           64   262207   262144  128M ef EFI (FAT-12/16/32)
/dev/sdb2  *    262272 30031871 29769600 14.2G a9 NetBSD

So is it only the following command that I require now? (It will be sd1 in
my case.)

# installboot -v -o timeout=1 /dev/rsd0a /usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv1
