I performed the same upgrade with freebsd-update on the weekend
without any problems.

FreeBSD 9.3-REL to 10.1-REL, root on ZFS v28, 2 x 1TB mirrored pool.

Running "gpart bootcode" etc was not necessary. You will probably need
to update the bootcode if you decide to use "zpool upgrade" at a later
date, though.
