vidconsole is invalid for efi booted systems
The loader values 'console="vidconsole"'or 'console="vidconsole,comconsole"'are invalid for systems booted UEFI where that does not exist. Instead console should be 'efi'.
That means if you enable a serial console on an efi booted system where VGA is primary you lose access to the boot loader menu.

With serial console enabled loader.conf shows:
kern.cam.boot_delay=10000 boot_multicons="YES" boot_serial="YES" console="efi,comconsole" comconsole_speed="115200" autoboot_delay="3" hw.usb.no_pf="1"
No both consoles show correctly. No longer seeing the console error at the start.
