Your supfile is correct for what you want to do. If you read the faq at (#11), however, you will see that on the _first_
cvsup, a slightly different method is recommended to ensure your
checkouts file is correct. In your particular case, in place of
tag=RELENG_4_10, you should have tag=RELENG_4_10_0_RELEASE
list=cvs:RELENG_4_10. Then, when that finishes, change the tag back to
tag=RELENG_4_10 and delete the list= portion of the line. Then run
cvsup again. Remember, you should do this only on the _first_ cvsup;
all subsequent times, ignore this step.
As for checking that you properly updated, after building and
installing world and kernel, run uname -a. You should see
4.10-RELEASE-p2. If you do, the src patches are installed. (The p2
shows your patch level. Right now, for 4.10, it is p2.)
Speaking of src patches, you have only src-all in your supfile. This
means your ports, docs, and cvsroot will _not_ be updated. If you
intend that, fine, just making sure you know. If not, add ports-all,
docs-all, and cvsroot=all to your file.
