No, the install process doesn’t touch rc.conf. If you enable sshd during install, it changes nothing; if you disable sshd during install, it adds “sshd_flags=NO” to rc.conf.local.

Read the manual page: rc.conf(8)
It is advisable to leave rc.conf untouched, and instead create and edit a new rc.conf.local file. Variables set in this file will override variables previously set in rc.conf.
Many thanks to the forum regulars who put time and effort into helping others solve their problems.
