No. For one thing, FBSD only allows 8 filesystems within the primary partition it uses, whereas I think an extended partition allows something like 63.

For another, it's only possible to have one extended partition per drive afaik, whereas you can have multiple BSD partitions per drive - that is, a freebsd, an openbsd, and a netbsd partition, or two freebsd's and one netbsd, etc.

Thirdly, all OS's on the drive report a *BSD partition as either a BSD primary partition or an unknown partition, not as an extended one.
