mysterious uname non-updates

Dear colleagues,

today, updating one of my machines, I got the following mysterious results 
after reboot:

root at ogre:~# sysctl -a | grep RELE
kern.osrelease: 6.3-RELEASE
kern.version: FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE #4: Thu Jan 17 15:28:57 MSK 2008
root at ogre:~# strings /boot/kernel/kernel | grep RELE
FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE-p4 #6: Sun Sep  7 23:13:45 MSD 2008
@(#)FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE-p4 #6: Sun Sep  7 23:13:45 MSD 2008
root at ogre:~# env | grep -i uname
root at ogre:~# 

WTF? Why my kernel reports that it is previous version (actually it is already 
deleted, so I'm double puzzled)

Any clues? Thanks!
