When updating jails from the HOST with freebsd-update using the default
config file, so with something like:

freebsd-update --not-running-from-cron --currently-running X.Y-RELEASE -b /jailroot/myjail -f /jailroot/myjail/etc/freebsd-update.conf -d /jailroot/myjail/var/db/freebsd-update fetch install

I'm wondering if paths in the /jailroot/myjail/etc/freebsd-update.conf
(like UpdateIfUnmodified, IDSIgnorePaths, IgnorePaths, etc) are
prepended with the basedir (so /jailroot/myjail in my example above)
when running freebsd-update from the HOST?
