freebsd-update provides a binary update mechanism.
It doesn't do anything to update the source files; if you choose to rebuild from source, use cvsup/csup/svn; you will normally get a -STABLE system from the build cycle, and not a -RELEASE system, but that depends upon which branch you are tracking.
