No.  freebsd-update has always supported using a custom kernel.  It
helps if you name your kernel something other than GENERIC, which you do
by creating a modofoed kernel config file in /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf (or
i386 if that's your architecture): eg.

% cat FOO
include GENERIC

ident FOO

and then add:


to /etc/make.conf

You should also edit /etc/freebsd-update.conf and change the
'Components' line to remove 'kernel' from the list.

None of this is absolutely necessary, but it will help you avoid
accidentally ending up with the generic kernel.

In any case, what you will need to do is rebuild your kernel and
reinstall it any time freebsd-update touches the kernel.  You can use
freebsd-update to maintain the kernel sources, which will pull in the
needed updates to the kernel sources.
