  freebsd-update does not use mergemaster, though probably it should. 
We had this discussion a month or two ago.

  Currently there is no way around verifying the changes for each file
with a changed $ID$ field, frustrating as it is.

  (Also, if you realize you've made a mistake and say "N" at the end
when it asks if all the merges are OK, it kicks you out of the update
process instead of going through the merges again.)
