Additional example for vlans_ demonstrating punct-translation

Hello,

topic should explain my intention.

Today, again, I tried to use 'create_args_lagg0.dmz='.
Then, again, I inspected /etc/network.subr, found the issue, corrected my config to 'create_args_lagg0_dmz=' and suddenly remembered having done the same already multiple times over the last years.
I also remembered, that when I first used the IF-rename feature in rc.conf(5), I found the examples very helpful but was missing the punct->_ translation.
Maybe that little addition could help people using their preferred naming scheme; the script does provide everything needed to do so!
