OSX is based on the Mach kernel, not the bsd kernel.

"Apple selected OPENSTEP to be the basis for the successor of the classic Mac
OS. It became the Cocoa API of Mac OS X. OPENSTEP is in fact an upgraded
version of NeXTSTEP, which used Mach 2.5. As such, OPENSTEP's Mach/BSD amalgam
is the basis for Apple's Mac OS X operating system."
