php version

please help me understand.

In /usr/ports/UPDATING we have:

# grep -A11 ^20150220 /usr/ports/UPDATING | more
  AFFECTS: users of PHP

  The default PHP version has been updated from 5.4 to 5.6.

  If you use binary packages you should make a list of php packages
  before running 'pkg upgrade':

  # pkg info php5\* > ~/installed-php-ports-list

  After the upgrade, check with such list if all your php extensions
  are still installed, and reinstall them if needed.

but, also:

# grep -B1 ^PORTVERSION /usr/ports/lang/php5/Makefile
PORTNAME=       php5
PORTVERSION=    5.4.38

same with pkg:

# pkg install -n php5
Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...
FreeBSD repository is up-to-date.
All repositories are up-to-date.
The following 1 packages will be affected (of 0 checked):

New packages to be INSTALLED:
        php5: 5.4.39

The process will require 15 MiB more space.
2 MiB to be downloaded.

This in a 10.1-RELENG. Is UPDATING wrong?
Thank you
