Making world doesn't change all ownerships?

I have a test machine where some users changed a number of
directories to be owned by "www:www" by mistake. The machine was unusable.
After rebuilding from sources the machine was usable, but I noticed that
a number of files still were owned by "www". In particular I saw files in
/usr/sbin, /usr/bin.. and likely other places.
Shouldn't rebuilding from source fix the ownership?
I followed the steps in "Common items" from /usr/src/UPDATING, like have
done many times before...
make kernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE
<reboot in single user> 
mergemaster -p 
Since it is a test machine, if there are still odd issues I may just re-do
the whole machine.. and newfs.. but was puzzled that rebulding world would
leave binarines with the wrong ownership.
