I believe it says "The BSD layer is based on the BSD kernel, 
primarily FreeBSD."  It does not says the OSX kernel.

peep developer.apple.com if you really don't believe me ;-)  
it's a tad more reliable then wikipedia

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."
