I'm not sure why you addressed this to me (having essentially no
background with grub or booting to begin with), but I do hope 
whoever advised you did not use the word "complain" but "reach
out for advise".

I assume you are aware of

and the grub documentation that says

  4.2.3 FreeBSD

  GRUB can load the kernel directly, either in ELF or a.out format.  But
  this is not recommended, since FreeBSD's bootstrap interface sometimes
  changes heavily, so GRUB can't guarantee to pass kernel parameters

  Thus, we'd recommend loading the very flexible loader '/boot/loader'
  instead.  See this example:

     grub> root (hd0,a)
     grub> kernel /boot/loader
     grub> boot
