When puppet starts the puppet ZFS provider issues the zfs command. On FreeBSD this automatically loads the ZFS kernel module. Even when ZFS is not used on that host. The provider should first check if ZFS is enabled or not. If it’s not enabled it shouldn’t execute any zpool or zfs commands as those will trigger the automatic load of the kernel module.
