It's often possible - but cannot be counted on.

Probably not - RELENG_4_6_2_RELEASE is exactly what was
released as 4.6.2 - RELENG_4_6 is sure to have all the security fixes
on the 4.6 branch. I would not reccomend either now though as the
current stable release for 4.x is 4.11 and 4.6 is rather old.
