I see the following code in kern_accf.c

         * Require a listen socket; don't try to replace an existing filter
         * without first removing it.
        if ((so->so_options & SO_ACCEPTCONN) == 0 || so->so_accf != NULL) {
                error = EINVAL;
                goto out;

which seems to imply that the behaviour you see is purposeful..  does
FreeBSD allow implicit replacement of the filter?

I'm not sure but perhaps accept filters should be documented in accept()
or listen() also? (currently I don't see any user-side documentation?)
