Maybe I'm confused, but I thought freebsd-update installed precompiled
binaries of the generic kernel and world. Therefore, you would need to
reboot if the kernel changed. Freebsd-update should tell you what will be
changed after it finishes the fetch. I don't recall if it also tells you
what it installed.
If it isn't already obvious,
my opinions are my own and not
those of my employer.
