As I explained earlier on freebsd-python@, unlike 'portupgrade -r
python', the upgrade-site-packages target just rebuilds ports that
have files in the library directories belonging to non-default
versions of python, and ports that in turn depend upon them, not
necessarily every port that lists python as a dependency.
upgrade-site-packages is for your convenience, to rebuild a (probably)
smaller collection of ports that are most likely to need rebuilding
after a change in default python versions.
