I think it is gdm. That provides /usr/local/share/gdm/applications/gdmsetup.desktop, which is the System->Administration->Login Window menu item.
I don't run 2.24 anymore (decided to stay with 2.22 for now), but I seem to remember this menu option was no longer there when I was running 2.24. Instead, I think at your login screen you should be able to find an option to edit the login window - which is the same thing that menu option would have done.
If /usr/local/sbin/gdmsetup exists, run it as root for the same window.
Here is a similar problem in a different os:

Sorry, I might have been wrong. I just upgraded to 2.24, and now I can't find any way to setup gdm. Then I found this: http://email@example.com/msg13987.html.
So it looks like there is no gdm setup at this point?
Supposedly you can change the background, but I can't figure out how.

Maybe you can by editing /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf (I'm on a 'driva box ATM. The path might be different on BSD).

I am looking for the same thing too, and I feel the new version gdm is worse than the old one.
