Assuming you never do source updates of your base system,
(& given that you use freebsd-update, you probably don't ever)
& that you don't install any ports that require that /usr/src be
present to build (assuming you build ports from source rather
than just install pre-built packages), I can't think of a good
reason to keep it.

In any case, there's no harm in removing it, as its absence
won't affect a running system, & it can be easily restored
should the need arise.

Good luck!
