I would actually say "don't do that (upgrade from 10 to 11 via pkg). Use 
freebsd-update instead, then upgrade to 11.1 or 12.0 via pkg". The rationale 
for this is that if you install the package from 10.x, and need to downgrade 
for whatever reason, you'll likely be dealing with a reinstall or a VM/zfs 
rollback as opposed to being able to install a downgraded base system/kernel
