daily.conf(5) doesn't say what to set it to (not every variable is YES or NO).
security.conf(5), to which daily.conf(5) points, is similarly cryptic.
These days (and perhaps this is where a purported doc problem might be
surfacing), it is generally recommended to use etcupdate(8) after
unpacking sets, to merge changes to /etc. This would have gotten you
the new defaults.
etcupdate -s /path/to/etc.tgz -s /path/to/xetc.tgz
...and follow the prompts. etcupdate also invokes postinstall(8).
