Description

From the manual page for zfs(8) in FreeBSD 10.2:

        PROPERTY    MOUNT OPTION
        atime       atime/noatime
        exec        exec/noexec
        readonly    ro/rw
        setuid      suid/nosuid

    In addition, these options can be set on a per-mount basis using the -o
    option, without affecting the property that is stored on disk. …

It seems peculiar to not find mountpoint in that shortlist.

There's altroot for zpool(8) but that does not allow for use cases where both:

a) the required pool is already is imported; and

b) it is inappropriate or undesirable to make a permanent (non-temporary) change to the mountpoint property value.
