I am not 110% sure, but you can not.
When freebsd-update runs, it checks its config file /etc/freebsd-update.conf
and then takes inventory of your system (that's why it is called "update", and
that's why you do not get new src set).
FREEBSD-UPDATE(8) does not give any "override" option.
So, here you are. But next time (assuming you keep your src) you will be fine.
