As another reader already said, this can be "fixed" by recompiling the kernel. In fact, you may notice that this file changes every time freebsd-update fetches new patches:

/usr/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh

This is responsible for giving your custom kernels the -p1, -p2 and so on designations. It is not however always necessary to recompile the kernel. Some updates do not really contain any changes to kernel code. For example, AFAIR, p1 for 7.0 RELEASE only had some updates for the ssh daemon. In this case recompiling the kernel will only give you the p1 designation, but nothing much else. However this is still useful for people maintaining a number of machines: They can quickly tell which ones are updated and which not.
