Not relevant.

/etc/make.conf definitions are applied to ALL make operations and that
includes kernel and module building.
/etc/src.conf definitions are only applied to the kernel, modules, and
ports. When src.conf was created, it was explicitly NOT intended that the
file be used for building ports, but someone has changed that. It probably
should have been used for ports that built kernel modules, but not any
others, but that is not the case.
# We prefer to pass MK_*=no but it was only supported after a certain
# revision.  Passing WITHOUT_* may conflict with a make.conf or src.conf's
# WITH_* value.  Note that ports *do* pull in src.conf.
