Others have already suggested several workarounds.
Another possibility is to set only the IP via rc.conf:

ifconfig_rl0="inet 192.168.2.12 netmask 255.255.255.0"

And set the MAC address with an interface start script
which should be named /etc/start_if.rl0 in your case
and contain this line:

ifconfig rl0 ether 00:02:4f:0a:ce:f3
