Have you verified in /etc/freebsd-update.conf that "src"
is definitely part of what should be updated?

I assume the correct targets "buildkernel" and "installkernel"
have been used. ;-)

Attention: Into single-user mode.

Into multi-user mode again.

Again, verify your configuration. Compare your steps with the
comment header of /usr/src/Makefile which illustrates the
exact procedure; from a (dated) 8-STABLE installation:
1. `cd /usr/src' (or to the directory containing your source tree).
2. `make buildworld'
3. `make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC).
4. `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC).
[steps 3. & 4. can be combined by using the "kernel" target]
5. `reboot' (in single user mode: boot -s from the loader prompt).
6. `mergemaster -p'
7. `make installworld'
8. `make delete-old'
9. `mergemaster' (you may wish to use -i, along with -U or -F).
11. `make delete-old-libs' (in case no 3rd party program uses them anymore)
