Caution:  if you do that, you will lose the (new) entry for the group
"ntpd", which is probably not what you want.

There was a recent(-ish) change that created the user & group "ntpd" *so
there should be a corresponding change to /etc/master.passwd, as well).

I recommend that you "merge" the changes: take the FreeBSD version ("r")
for the $FreeBSD: line and for the ntpd line; use yours ("l") for the
others, then -- optionally -- "view" the changed file (will use your
$PAGER -- from which you can invoke $EDITOR and make additional changes
if something doesn't look quite right), then "install" the changed file.

Tangentially related, I also recommend doing these updates within a
script(1) session, so you have a record in case there are questionis
about what actually happened.
