From /etc/defaults/rc.conf:

fsck_y_enable="NO"      # Set to YES to do fsck -y if the initial preen fails.
background_fsck="YES"   # Attempt to run fsck in the background where possible.
background_fsck_delay="60" # Time to wait (seconds) before starting the fsck.
Setting fsck_y_enable in /etc/rc.conf would mean the system would automatically fsck the drive ... There is no way to disable fsck completely at boot without hacking /etc/rc.d/fsck.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
