An app like portmaster or portupgrade would be able to know that.  It's
an oddity of the ports/pkg system that because 'upgrade' is implemented
as 'delete' followed by 'install' that there is difficulty in making
that distinction.

In fact, portupgrade has a nifty feature you can enable which causes it
to run '/usr/local/etc/rc.d/foo start' for any rc scripts installed by a
port it is working on.  Which is almost, but not quite, exactly what is
wanted; it should issue 'restart' for services already running, or
'start' for services stopped during the upgrade process.
