freebsd-update Not Recognizing Updated Custom Kernel for 9.0-RELEASE-p3

I have several FreeBSD 9 systems with custom compiled kernels. After 
using freebsd-update to go from 9.0-RELEASE-p2 to 9.0-RELEASE-p3 this 
morning I rebuilt the kernels. However after recompiling, installing, 
and rebooting with the custom kernels subsequent update checks using 
freebsd-update cron or freebsd-update fetch indicate that 
/boot/kernel/kernel (and only /boot/kernel/kernel) needs to be updated 
despite the custom kernel indicating 9.0-RELEASE-p3 in the output of 
uname -a.
