pkg: /var/cache/pkg and pkg upgrade, how does this work ?

I have a host with a up2date /var/cache/pkg/ and a jail with a
not so up2date pkg collection.

Now I want to mount /var/cache/pkg into the jail at the same
location and hope that I do not have to re-fetch all the files.

Testing this, the problem is: The packages installed in the jail
are deemed up2date by pkg and they are *not* updated at all ?

How can I update a jail with the pkg cache from 'above' and avoid
fetching packages all over again ?
