Summary

The wireless example in lagg(4)'s manpage no longer works.

laggtype is not documented in the manpage other than in the example, so add a paragraph about it.

While here, move the section on rc.conf to a plan where it sits more logically.

Because some WiFi interfaces won't allow setting the MAC address, the recommended procedure is now to set the Ethernet interface's address to the WiFi's. See example 3 in https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/handbook/advanced-networking/#network-aggregation.

I would move the "up" to the line setting the ethernet MAC, just slightly cleaner to have the MAC set before the interface comes up.
