You look like you're quoting from the Wikipedia entry.

It's wrong - I should update it.

Of course, FreeBSD and Mac OS X are related, so this may be repeating what you 

Even Solaris (once a BSD-based O/S) has "run level S" which is also called 
single-user mode.

Need I mention OpenBSD (and NetBSD probably has it too)?
