Correct, these updates will appear in 6.2.

RELENG_6 is the branch from which 6.x releases are built.  During the
6.1 release cycle, the RELENG_6 branch was "copied" to create the
RELENG_6_1 errata branch, from which 6.1-RELEASE was actually built.
New features and bug fixes for 6.2 go into RELENG_6, but only security
and critical bug fixes will go into RELENG_6_1.
