I upgraded again today with freebsd-update and rebooted.

% freebsd-version -kru

same error:

Network interface status: Shared object "" not found, required by "netstat"

What's odd is it's only this one bhyve vm with it. There are other bhyve vms
on the same host at the same revision without this issue. There's no
/etc/src.conf or /etc/make.conf. It's otherwise working fine.
