Default Where should I put my config? "rc.conf" or "rc.conf.local"?

I think I should put everything in "rc.conf.local" like this:

Code:
ntpd_flags=             # enabled during install
sshd_flags=             # enabled by root
ftpd_flags="-DllUSA"    # enabled by root
But I find the installation utility enabled ssh in rc.conf.
So, what is your suggestion?

Maybe I should not enable anything during the installation and enable waht I want laterally by myself within "rc.conf.local".

No, the install process doesn’t touch rc.conf. If you enable sshd during install, it changes nothing; if you disable sshd during install, it adds “sshd_flags=NO” to rc.conf.local.

Read the manual page: rc.conf(8)

It is advisable to leave rc.conf untouched, and instead create and edit a new rc.conf.local file. Variables set in this file will override variables previously set in rc.conf.
