That command will revert any local changes you have made to the port files
(if you edited them manually, it reverts them to the official version from
FreeBSD ports).

I guess it is not documented within pkg(8) as it has nothing to do with
pkg. It's purely related to how subversion deals with local modifications
to repository files.

For more documentation on the subversion command, you can check:
$ svn help revert
