freebsd src is https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/blob/master/sys/sys/stat.h

it has 2 defines for "stat": usual

struct stat {
     dev_t     st_dev;        /* inode's device */
     ino_t      st_ino;        /* inode's number */
     nlink_t      st_nlink;        /* number of hard links */
*mode_t      st_mode;        /* inode protection mode */*


and additional one for freebsd 11:

#if defined(_WANT_FREEBSD11_STAT) || defined(_KERNEL)
struct freebsd11_stat {
     __uint32_t st_dev;        /* inode's device */
     __uint32_t st_ino;        /* inode's number */
*mode_t      st_mode;        /* inode protection mode */*



the 1st freebsd type is compatible with FPC (I checked only by list of 
fields and order of fields, w/out checking aligns). the 2nd is NOT 
compatible with FPC. so i wonder, which define freebsd 12 uses??? I 
cannot google it easily.

DirectoryExists reads st_mode item.
