officially and originally an OpenBSD component, development follows
OpenBSD, so the FreeBSD/pfSense version has its own man pages because
the syntax has changed a bit.

I don't use pfSense myself; you and a few others know I use my choice of
firewalls directly. I can do a primer of PF itself if there's interest;
I remember Rich Mingin demoing pfSense at a prior general discussion.
