Yes; two reasons in fact:
1. Tagging the tree for every security update isn't feasible in CVS.
2. There is a branch available for "RELEASE plus the all available security
and critical errata fixes" (RELENG_X_Y for X.Y-RELEASE), and you should never
not install all available security and critical errata fixes.
