I thought "pkg updating" would alert me about python...?

I just re-verified the behavior, so -- even though I have already
started taking evasive action (updating python), I figured it may be of
use to show what I'm seeing; maybe I'm confused:
Local ports tree is updated; previous ports update was a week ago. I
happen to know that there's an UPDATING entry:
lgld-dhw(12.2-S) tail +16 /usr/ports/UPDATING | head -5
AFFECTS: users of python
AUTHOR: kai at FreeBSD.org
The default version of python3 and python was switched to 3.8.
And that this machine should be affected:
lgld-dhw(12.2-S) pkg info -o python\*
[As noted above, I had already started evasive action.]
But "pkg updating" is not actually showing the above entry:
lgld-dhw(12.2-S) pkg updating -d 20210424
lgld-dhw(12.2-S) echo $?
Am I alone in expecting "pkg updating" to have displayed the 20210425
(There was an issue a while back, where "pkg updating" was not showing
"glob" entries, but that has since been addressed.)
This is on a machine running stable/12:
lgld-dhw(12.2-S) uname -a
FreeBSD lgld-dhw.corp.example.com 12.2-STABLE FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE #21 stable/12-n233048-23a3c3d97d72: Sun May 2 04:43:57 PDT 2021 root at lgld-dhw.corp.example.com:/common/S2/obj/common/S2/src/amd64.amd64/sys/GENERIC amd64
lgld-dhw(12.2-S) pkg -v
