 `GENERIC` kernels shipped with FreeBSD are compiled in _debug mode_.
 Kernels built in debug mode contain debug data in separate files that are used for debugging.
-FreeBSD releases prior to 11.0 store these debug files in the same directory as the kernel itself, [.filename]#/boot/kernel/#.
-In FreeBSD 11.0 and later the debug files are stored in [.filename]#/usr/lib/debug/boot/kernel/#.
+The debug files are stored in [.filename]#/usr/lib/debug/boot/kernel/#.
 Note that there will be little or no performance loss from running a debug kernel, and it is useful to keep one around in case of a system panic.
 When running low on disk space, there are different options to reduce the size of [.filename]#/boot/kernel/# and [.filename]#/usr/lib/debug/#.
