Saving /var using flashrd 1.3

I am running flashrd 1.3 and using OpenBSD 5.3. I have created a CF image
(for a Soekris 4801) and a USB image for a Intel motherboard (CV860). So
far so good. Apart from having to tweek the kernel for the wd* DMA issue
all is well.

After reading the documentation from:
http://www.nmedia.net/flashrd/flashrd-faq.html I was attempting to get the
system to save /var upon restart. All documentation seems to say that:

a. /var is saved by default
b. on defines the "tardirs" shell variable to indicate which directories to
save with "/var" as the default

I added:

tardirs=var

to both:

/etc/rc.conf.local

and

/etc/rc.shutdown

to no effect.

I found the only way to really effect /var from being saved upon reboot is
to edit the file:

/etc/rc.flashrd.sub

and comment out the line:

savetardirs="$tardirs"

Am I mis-reading the documentation?
