Default Terminal display behavior

I couldnt think of good key words to google, so I thought I should seek help here

The terminal Im using atm is Gnome-terminal in FreeBSD. I notice those differences:

1. Man page display



I really like the way how man page displayed in linux, because I can read more with less interaction. 1-0 for linux . How can I config this in FreeBSD?

2. VIM



If I finish vim session, the file content can be displayed by scrolling up in FreeBSD. However, in Linux, the content is gone . Equalizer for FreeBSD, 1-1

Im a bit confused, I thought the display is independent of OS, and it is a job of the terminal?
The power of plain text? It can control an entire OS
