No, it doesn't. Specifically, it skips the reboot and mergemaster between
the installkernel and installworld steps, which means that you'll end up
running a new userspace against an old kernel and /etc for a little while.

There you have it. "make world" is *not* the recommended upgrade process
anymore. The new method is detailed in UPDATING.
"94 outdated ports on the box,
94 outdated ports.
Portupgrade one, an hour 'til done,
82 outdated ports on the box."
