De facto, in current, the behavior is totally changed: nothing is 
passed by the UEFI environment variables anymore but the UEFI OS
loader takes parameters in the same way other instances of the
second-stage loader behave.

See /usr/src/sys/stand/efiboot/version:

2.2:    Remove support for storing settings in EFI env vars.

So it is useless to write a man page at least for now since it is a
moving target...

And the ones presently working on it will be far more apt to add such
a man page once this is settled.
