I currently use FreeBSD 12-STABLE under VirutalBox 5.2.42.

After switching from ttyv0 to any other ttyv, logos-per-CPU appear and remain persistent. I have not noticed during boot; do not see after boot.

Is there no option to turn off logos per CPU on vt (https://reviews.freebsd.org/D2181) but by (re)building FreeBSD kernel sans "device splash"?

I should have noted originally that FreeBSD is being booted via EFI.

I had since recompiled the kernel with "nodevice splash". Now I do not see the logos-per-CPU after switching (virtual)consoles.

That is less than good enough solution when using GENERIC kernel & for anyone who do not want to recompile the kernel for whatever reasons.
