 This sounds a bit strange at first sight, but multiple networks (one per VAP) for a single radio do make sense. Here is the original paper describing the design: [FreeBSD wireless BSDCan 2005](https://www.bsdcan.org/2005/papers/FreeBSDWirelessNetwokringSupport.pdf)  This sounds a bit strange at first sight, but multiple networks (one per VAP) for a single radio do make sense.

   VAP is the term used internally in the code, it is meant to mean a virtual wifi radio. In the wifi world nowadays VAP would be a virtual access point, which is not quite the same thing as the virtualized interface we are talking about here. You can think of VAP as something similar to a VLAN, or a tap(4) or vether(4) connected to a bridge(4), where the real "wlandev" from the ifconfig create command line is the equivalent of the bridge.
