The FreeBSD Handbook says:

"Generally, installed applications will continue to work without
problems after minor version upgrades."

Which is somewhat at odds with the message you saw from

"Completing this upgrade requires removing old shared object files.
Please rebuild all installed 3rd party software (e.g., programs
installed from the ports tree) and then run "freebsd-update install"
again to finish installing updates."
