WD Red NAS firmware with a Freebsd 11.2 zfs system

Will the firmware on a 4tb WD Red NAS HD (Nasware 3.0) conflict in anyway, or cause problems, with a Freebsd-zfs system if the firmware is not being used at all? Does the firmware need to be bypassed somehow with some procedure, or just ignored?

The ZFS system will contain only two mirrors. It will not have any raidz devices at the moment.
