biosboot is supposed to be used when you setup bootstrap
with gpt biosboot, but I never managed to get that working.
And the flag does not even appear in the sources!

About bootme: let's say you have a GPT in RAID in GPT, and you boot 

The bootme flag is used to select what inner GPT partition is used.
But you can also add labels to the inner GPT partition and use
boot NAME=inner_gpt_label:/netbsd
