Upgrading from 7.3 to 8.1: uname -a still shows 7.3p3

I have the 8.1 sources, did a buildworld, buildkernel, installkernel,  
Now I have 8.1 binaries:

server# file /bin/tcsh
/bin/tcsh: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1  
(FreeBSD), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for FreeBSD 8.1,  

but not the kernel:

server# uname -a
FreeBSD server 7.3-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 7.3-RELEASE-p3 #3: Tue Nov 16  
01:12:23 CET 2010     root at server:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

How is that possible?

Or is it just a mis-representation?

kern.osreldate: 801000

I did a csup twice and rebuilt the kernel multiple times.
Also did a complete buildworld buildkernel cycle.
