freebsd-update question

while updating my FreeBSD box, freebsd-update reported:

Looking up mirrors... 1 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature from done.
No updates needed to update system to 6.2-RELEASE-p6.

However, uname -a reveals:

FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p4 FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p4 #0: Thu
Apr 26 17:55:55 UTC 2007
root at  i386

which suggests that my system is still running 6.2-RELEASE-p4, not
6.2-RELEASE-p6 that I guess it should be running. The box was rebooted
a couple of times, but still reports the same.

My question: am I reading something wrong here or is there a problem
with freebsd-update? More specifically, is the problem that the system
is running SMP?

Thanks for any input!
