Dear forum,

I found the appropriate manual page for NetBSD detailing the various compat options

man 4 options
Compatibility Options

options COMPAT_09
Enable binary compatibility with NetBSD 0.9. This enables support for
16-bit user, group...getdomainname(3),
setdomainname(3), and uname(3) syscalls. This option also allows using
numeric file system identifiers rather than strings. Post NetBSD 0.9
versions use string identifiers.
options COMPAT_43
Enables compatibility with 4.3BSD. This adds an old syscall for
lseek(2) for some older pre
4.4BSD socket calls.
