This is a file packaged with libxml. Specifically noted as an "@extra" file in the port's packing list (/usr/ports/textproc/libxml/pkg/PLIST-main).

The pkg_create(1) man page defines an @extra file as:
     @extra filename
             Declare extra file filename to be deleted at deinstall time, if
             user sets the -c option.  Those files are extra configuration
             files that are normally not deleted.  filename can be an absolute
             path.  If filename ends with a slash, it is a directory.
An upgrade won't delete or revise any configuration or data files.
  • If you have made any manual configuration changes to this file, you will need to review the application for any changes and manually update as needed.
  • If you have not made any changes to this file, you may ignore the message.
