If this is true, perhaps the "build" man page should be updated.
Here's what the man page has to say on the topic:
The ``approved'' method of updating your system from the latest
make buildkernel KERNCONF=FOO
make installkernel KERNCONF=FOO
After running these commands a system reboot is required...
This gives the impression that you're safe running all the builds
without rebooting, especially as the word "approved" is used.
