Have you seen https://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/evbarm/raspberry_pi/ ? It
mentions Raspberry Pi 4 requires UEFI firmware to boot. I've tested it
like that and it boots just fine with an image for instance from
https://nycdn.netbsd.org/pub/arm/ (you need 64-bit GENERIC) or from

UEFI firmware can be found at https://github.com/pftf/RPi4/releases
and it's linked and mentioned on the wiki. There is a way of having
the UEFI firmware and the NetBSD image on the same card but I haven't
tried that yet.
