It does indeed, a flag is used on the syslogd command line to create
log sockets in chroot jails as necessary. The system rc.d scripts handle
this for daemons such as NSD which are in the base OS; if it's needed for
software in packages, it will be explained by a pkg-readme file or
package installation message.

If users have chosen an alternative syslog daemon (such as Cam has done),
they would be expected to configure it themselves.
