Quick hint: Use visudo
And: sudoers doesn't live in /etc as in many Linux; it is in /usr/local/etc
Other than that sudo on Linux and FreeBSD are essentially the same from a config file perspective.

isn't part of the FreeBSD operating system. It is an add on package, and thus it's documentation is to be found elsewhere.
On the OP's system, run:
pkg_info | grep sudo
With the version returned from that:
pkg_info -do sudo-220.127.116.11
... and that will tell you more about the package; where in the ports tree it lives (security/sudo) and often a website you can visit.
I suggest also installing from ports pkg_search:
Which will allow for searches like:
$ pkg_search -r sudo
