Default Interesting pf.conf observation

LAN = "em1"

In my pf.conf file I had $LAN:NETWORK in one of my rule sets and when I reloaded the rules using pfctl -f /etc/pf.conf the rules reload without an error. Although after I rebooted my router pf.conf fails to load the rules and indicates there is an error with NETWORK in pf.conf on startup.

Obvious issue here is that LAN:NETWORK should be $LAN:network. I find it strange that pfctl will reload the rules but after a reboot I get an error. Shouldn't pfctl produce and error when I reload the rules? Is this something that needs to be addressed with the developers? Just curious.
