If in doubt, reboot.  While there are obvious cases (e.g., you should
reboot after applying a kernel security patch) it's almost impossible
to give advice which will be correct for every situation.

One item on my FreeBSD Update feature wishlist is to provide such
guidance; there's a Google Summer of Code student working on FreeBSD
Update who might have time to do this towards the end of the summer.
