No, it's not.  But world- and kernel-related parts of "make
release" can be built in parallel, here's a relevant excerpt
from release/Makefile:

# If you want to pass flags to the world build such as -j X, use
# WORLD_FLAGS.  Similarly, you can specify make flags for kernel
# builds via KERNEL_FLAGS.
# Similarly, you can specify make flags for make readmes via PORTREADMES_FLAGS.

The release(7) manpage mumbles something about that, but not too verbose.
