This is correct for the sources which usually are updated both
(running "make update" in /usr/src).

Such differences can occur if you
1st - make update
2nd - build and install world and kernel
3rd - make update again
4th - build and install kernel only
It can as well happen if you "make install" for a certain part of
the OS (from the /usr/src tree) only.
An indication of the current version of any part of the OS or the
kernel can be obtained from the $FreeBSD$ CVS tag on a per-file
basis. But note that these don't refer to a RELEASE or STABLE
