    I want to share my experience for anyone that have my same problem
    I have a pci-e quad port

    re0@pci0:6:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x012310ec chip=0x816810ec rev=0x07 hdr=0x00
        vendor     = 'Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.'
        device     = 'RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller'
        class      = network
        subclass   = ethernet
    re1@pci0:7:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x012310ec chip=0x816810ec rev=0x07 hdr=0x00
        vendor     = 'Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.'
        device     = 'RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller'
        class      = network
        subclass   = ethernet
    re2@pci0:8:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x012310ec chip=0x816810ec rev=0x07 hdr=0x00
        vendor     = 'Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.'
        device     = 'RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller'
        class      = network
        subclass   = ethernet
    re3@pci0:9:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x012310ec chip=0x816810ec rev=0x07 hdr=0x00
        vendor     = 'Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.'
        device     = 'RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller'
        class      = network
        subclass   = ethernet
    

    the problem was that every time i had to reboot the system, one of the interface was missing. i had to power off and on to make the interface reappear. Reading around i was able to compile the Realtek 1.95 driver for pfsense 2.4 and 2.5 amd64 tnx to @fkoczan contrib
    for anyone that need it, you can find it here https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fM-Jlmf8BY21kIEGueSxFWmrISZqcDj3
    put the module inside /boot/kernel
    and if_re_load="YES" inside loader.conf
    i had no more problem after this on my system with pfsense 2.5.0
