Updating Samba

I was just wondering why the ports version of Samba is so far behind
the official latest release of this software. Currently, the ports
system is only up to version samba 4.13.17_1, released in 2020. The
latest official release is Samba 4.16.2 as listed on the samba web site.

Is this due to some technical problem? I have Googled but found nothing
specific to this matter.
