I think I butchered my supfile - can anyone tell me why I get this result?

You currently have your default tag set to RELENG_6 (which is correct), but
when you place "tag=." next to your src, ports, and doc entries, you
override the default setting of RELENG_6. Remove the "tag=." next to your
src, ports, and doc entires, cvsup again, and your sources should be updated
with 6 STABLE.
