FreeBSD-11 : What TCP/UDP ports does pkg update use?

Experimenting with PF I discover that the pkg utility is being
blocked.  However, I cannot seem to find any documentation on what
port(s) pkg is trying to use.  Can someone provide me with a
reference, please?

I know I could install wireshark and just scan for it/them but that
seems a bit excessive just to obtain the default values.
