Strange. It is the man page but not in your script. Maybe you need to
reinstall audit-packages from clean source.

I see:

if [ -r /usr/pkg/etc/audit-packages.conf ]; then
        echo "Reading settings from /usr/pkg/etc/audit-packages.conf"
        . /usr/pkg/etc/audit-packages.conf

(The source version uses PKG_SYSCONFDIR instead of hard-coded etc/.)

Is your audit-packages.conf readable?
