One thing that surprised me was that I was testing with the USB install

ended up as sd23 and there is a hard coded sd0 somewhere in the install

No hardcoded sd0, but maybe the boot device matching did not properly work
for this case (depends on geometry and stuff that the bootloader gets
from bios USB emulation or something).

Interesting, I noticed exactly the same when booting a -current image to
test the original mfii changes. In my case, sd0 and sd1 are the HW RAID arrays and sd2 is the USB stick:

[     8.177453] sd2 at scsibus1 target 0 lun 0: <InnoDisk, USB Drive, 0225> disk removable
[     8.177453] sd2: 3958 MB, 522 cyl, 255 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 8105984 sectors
[     8.287566] boot device: sd2
[     8.287566] root on sd2a dumps on sd2b
