pkg really wants to install nvidia-driver-390, why?

I have nvidia-driver-470.86 installed, but every time I run pkg upgrade or pkg 
install it wants to install nvidia-driver-390.  That obviously fails because of 
conflicts with the installed driver.

That does not cause me too much trouble, but I am really curious what's so 
special about nvidia-driver-390 that pkg insists on me having it.
