Module "kernel" exists but with wrong version, after upgrade. (But still working)

Hey all,

After doing a full-on upgrade from 8.4, to 10.3 via freebsd-update, my system is running fine, but I see this error at startup:

It seems harmless enough, but I’m concerned.

Strings /boot/kernel/kernel show that it is in fact 10.3-P18, but I don’t know where the loader (I assume it’s the loader) is reading the alternate version from that’s “wrong”.  (I.e. it would be super nice if the two conflicting versions were printed).

Any ideas?
