Yes. camcontrol is just used for informational candy. You can
check if it works by running it manually to determine e.g. size
of /dev/ad0, but it's not related to your grub-probe problem.
grub-probe in squeeze doesn't use libgeom, it was introduced in
bzr show -c 3118 http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/r/grub/trunk/grub/
If it's a regression, it could be a bug in GRUB or maybe it's a
silent ABI bump (I'd check if a GRUB rebuild helps).
