It's just the wrong syntax. Use the right syntax, that's all. Otherwise it has those capabilities. Different applications that refer to the same need will often not have the same syntax to accomplish equivalent tasks. This is no different.

There are many wonderful qualities to OpenBSD. Relative to this topic is the notion that configuration files for applications that are OpenBSD-native (so-to-speak) should have similar syntax rules for ease of management. So OpenBGPd and OpenOPSFd and relayd (and others) will have the same syntax style in their respective configuration files as is used in pf (in /etc/pf.conf). You will often hear, when describing applications of this type, references to a "pf-style configuration file". It's not on accident.
