No, the certificate being used on is NOT the one being  
used for (www\.)?

If you're seeing the certificate from (www\.)? on the wiki site  
you either are a victim of a MITM attack or the specific regional FreeBSD  
webserver you're talking to has the wrong certificate configured. I'm not  
even sure if the FreeBSD website has multiple webservers based on  
geographical region.

If you're seeing the (www\.)? certificate on  
site please report which IP you're connecting to so we can start comparing  
notes. If we can prove there are multiple webservers/IPs hosting we need to contact whoever manages the webserver next.
