Can you tell me your FreeBSD version?
I am convinced that I did freebsd-update inside Jail on FreeBSD 6.2, but
I am not 100% sure and did not test it on FreeBSD 7.
Are you trying update (minor security updates) or upgrade to newer
release version? Maybe I was in luck, that my update routine did not
change any chflagged files.
