It's actually been like this with B2 -> B3, B3 -> B4 and now B4 -> RC1.

Otherwise freebsd-update does not error-out or anything. It just tries 
all those patches and continues with "Fetching files", and the rest of 
the process is normal. I've bumped several machines to 11.0-RC1 now 
(through B2, B3 and B4) and it all works fine.
