I am upgrading my FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE machines to 12.2-RELEASE.  The 
upgrade process seemed to go smoothly, but afterwards I noted that the 
OSTYPE environment variable still has the old value:

2021-02-13 19:56:02 toor at f1 ~
# freebsd-version ; uname -a
FreeBSD f1.tracy.holgerdanske.com 12.2-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 
12.2-RELEASE-p3 GENERIC  amd64

2021-02-13 19:56:11 toor at f1 ~
# env | grep -i freebsd

Please advise.
