What do you have auto_ifconfig set to?

/etc/defaults/rc.conf has ...

auto_ifconfig=YES                               # config all avail. interfaces
net_interfaces=""                               # used only if above is NO

Note the comment on the second .    If you set auto_ifconfog=NO
then you are also going to need wm0 in net_interfaces (before vlan0 I presume)
or it will not be configured.
