However, after the install completes, I do not get a message that the system needs to be rebooted.  Since its a new kernel, a reboot should be required to make it active.  Shouldn’t I be told that?  It seems like I used to get those messages.  I rebooted all of them just to be sure.

I think I have only seen freebsd-update after I've installed a newer
freebsd version. Good job on rebooting after a kernel update!

btw, your email client doesn't wrap lines very well. All your text
above is ONE line.
