Files that are:
check the man page for 'rc', it gives a clear and detailed rundown of
the daemon startup process.
It's all really quite simple, the system executes various system
daemons which are configured in the rc.conf, and other scripts like
rc.firewall load rulesets into ipfw, etc... Others like rc.local,
simply contain a number of shell commands to execute, (which can do
things like start daemons etc...).
Note that rc.shutdown is in there too, it's for stuff that you want to
run before the system is shut down, (databases, etc...)
Kindof a short answer, but that's really all there is to it.
