Basic question about SNMP on pfSense - MIB/OID = hardware dependant or FreeBSD?

Please excuse my basic question; I've been reading on the forums and such about the bsnmpd implementation in pfSense. If I'm understanding correctly, the MIBs/OIDs returned from snmpwalk are in part dependent upon what hardware you've got pfSense installed on. Is that correct?
Example: when I run snmpwalk on a pfSense install I get a lot of SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises values, which I presume I'd need the MIBs from the hardware manufacturer to decipher.
So there's only so much generic data you can get from pfSense via SNMP without knowing the MIBs/OIDs of the hardware it's installed on, right?
Or is it more to do with the version of FreeBSD pfSense is running/compiled with, as per https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=80074.0
It has to do with both of the following:
1. What hardware is in the system
2. What modules are loaded in bsnmpd
