One solution is to use devpubd to create symlinks in /dev/wedges, e.g.

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  8 Jul 17 22:03 /dev/wedges/0d2c1666-075f-4a70-bd04-c3f2913fbc80@ -> /dev/dk7
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  8 Jul 17 22:03 /dev/wedges/41993b4b-180c-4df3-bd6b-25b5cbc036cb@ -> /dev/dk6

The zpool can then be created using these links.

For this to work, devpubd needs to run before zfs by changing the
start script from 


to e.g.

# REQUIRE: root
# BEFORE:  zfs ccd cgd lvm raidframe

The devpubd hooks also used commands from /usr, then (with netbsd-9
or older -current) /usr must not be a separate partition. I have
updated the hooks in -current to avoid /usr, but for custom hooks
that still might be an issue.

N.B. recent -current is broken, zfs cannot access such symlinks.
