Description

If all interfaces has "Block bogon networks" unticked I would expect that periodic fetching of bogon tables was not needed. I stumbled across this when my WAN interface was down:

Apr 5 06:33:29 root Could not download https://files.pfsense.org/lists/fullbogons-ipv6.txt
Apr 5 06:33:29 syslogd sendto: Network is unreachable
Apr 5 06:33:29 root Could not extract fullbogons-ipv4.txt
Apr 5 06:33:29 syslogd sendto: Network is unreachable
Apr 5 06:33:29 root Could not download https://files.pfsense.org/lists/fullbogons-ipv4.txt

Guess its only a minor bug but should be up to the user to control this behaviour.

They have to be kept up-to-date or otherwise when someone chooses to enable bogons later, they could be very outdated and block unintended traffic until an update succeeds.

Updating when enabled could also be problematic.

It runs once a month and only takes a few moments, there isn't much to be gained by needlessly complicating the process.
