That's entirely a question to send to the distro folks responsible for
freeNAS/FreeBSD - we don't know how their package system works, which of
our files they included in their packages, or why their pkg_delete command
didn't remove the files you expected it to.   There's simply far too many
different packaging systems in the different distros for us to know them
all, while each distro has experts in the one they use.
