I've confirmed using the NetBSD 7.1 man pages that NetBSD will also want
DIR_HAS_BSD_GROUP_SEMANTICS.  MirBSD will also, according to its man

As I understand it, the only consequence of not setting this flag on BSD
systems is that some directories will be setgid, which, while ugly and
useless, should have no negative effect.
