As nobody with more official knowledge responded yet I'll chime in.

The pkg build cluster is configured for:
main-arm64 (FreeBSD 14-CURRENT): default branch
130arm64: quarterly branch
122arm64: quarterly branch

For armv6/7 I only see pkg builds for main (default branch) and 130 (quarterly branch).

To answer your question: AFAIK this is a choice about pkg build capacity and not a problem on the build cluster.
So for your FreeBSD 13 arm64 boxen I advice to follow the quarterly ports branch.
You can do this by changing "latest" to "quarterly" in the url in /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf.
