I found issues using Rufus to create my USB drives lately too... but Win32DiskImager seemed to work just fine. I would imagine that it has something to do with their "one file for all installs" setup, where one file can work for DVD and USB.
Happens to Rufus but i remember testing on Win32DiskImager and same thing?! and with dd and no boot.
Yes the dual img/iso thing. I should send a email or message to the Rufus dev to check this situation but not before talking with someone in the pfSense dev group first and i don't have patience for so many devs. Sorry.

No, I was saying that Win32DiskImager works fine.
I put a ?! but happens to me testing with Win32DiskImager and can't make a bootable USB, maybe my mistake (this is why the "?" in my writing). I will check in the near future.

To get the story short:
Any memstick version will fail to boot. Rufus and Etcher won't create a bootable Stick. Win32DiskImager create a stick, but won't be bootable for PfSense.
I created a successfully a bootstick with Rufus and Etcher from a 2.4.4 memstick-serial source. I installed PfSense via Serial without problems
Also creating a bootstick by renaming it to .ISO did not work with memstick. Not tried with memstick-serial.
There is someting wrong with memstick images, memstick-serial is OK.
Look to this thread
