Restarting daemons after portupgrade/portmanager

Hello! I have a question concerning port upgrades.

mysql51-server stops automatically during upgrade (using portupgrade or 
portmanager), and is properly started again based on a AFTERINSTALL 
setting in pktools.conf.

So far, so good. But what about the other daemons that still seem to run 
after upgrade (Apache, Courier IMAP etc)? Are the new version running 
fine after the upgrade, or should I set AFTERINSTALL to do a restart of 
these daemons, to make sure they run the upgraded version?
