All is good in BIND in system, except it depends on ports tree with
various options.
I have to do followed algorithm, to enable these options:
1) make and install base system
2) install needed dependencies from ports tree
3) rebuild and reinstall world

This is more complex than:
1) make and install base system
2) install same(?) BIND from ports tree with same options

Why does base system has any dependencies from ports?
I know about application features, but special cases aren't special
enough to break the rules, isn't it?

There is another step here, enable optional dependencies that are not
enabled by default.

So do that. :) Nothing requires you to use the optional mechanism in the
base.

You haven't actually expressed a problem here. Can you enumerate any
actual concerns you have, and what the implications of them are?

FWIW, I added the options that exist now in response to user demand.
People wanted to be able to use BIND in the base with those options
enabled.
