Small clarification: the hardware compatibility list isn't broken down by operating system (theoretically, the drivers should work on any POSIX system, with additional dependencies for USB).

In general, permissions on device nodes aren't set up automatically in FreeBSD. In particular, the USB nodes aren't writable by the default system username for NUT (uucp), so you probably will need to make a change to devd.conf.

What does 'usbconfig list' return when run as root?

Or, if the UPS connects over a serial port, what options are being used, and what is the resulting message when starting the driver (e.g. with 'upsdrvctl start')?
