You'll want to be more specific, what files do you refer to ?

If you're talking about the binaries and modules, they're owned by root
so this is a non issue.

If you're talking about the configuration files, they're also owned by root.

If you're talking about SSL certificates you've installed them yourself
and a portupgrade will not change their perms.

If you're talking about logfiles, these are your responsibility and,
again, the port won't change them.

Last, if you're talking about your HTML/php/whatever files, these are
also your responsiblity and untouched by the port.
