A5 Partion type confusion while dual booting DragonFlyBSD with FreeBSD

I had FreeBSD on da0s1 with A5 partition ID
OpenBSD on da0s2 with A6 partition ID
Then installed DragonFly on da0s3 and tried to boot with grub using

chainloader +1

but it will go to da0s1 and fail to boot.

I changed the partition ID of da0s1 to A9 and DragonFly boots.

Shouldn't dragonfly have its own partition ID?

Thanks :-)
