Ask the freebsd-utils people, after all it is their program and not
mine. I suspect the program is in that package because the freebsd /proc
emulation is a little sad, to say the least.

dpkg -S `which sysctl` would of told you where sysctl comes from.
Alternatively reportbug on the program name would of given the right
package too.

FWIW, procps won't be moving sysctl  to /bin (for non-freebsd platforms)
