Yes. RELENG_7_2 is the security patched update of Release. The -p2 means
there have been two security patches applied to the source code. The actual
release (RELENG_7_2_0_RELEASE) is static and will never change. The only
thing that changes with _7_2 is the addition/inclusion of the patches you
see in the security announcements.
