I read man freebsd-update but it has not answered my questions. That is,
after I have issued freebsd-update fetch/install, where can I find

Thank you in advance!
Maybe I'm confused, but I thought freebsd-update installed precompiled
binaries of the generic kernel and world.
True, but it also updates the relevant sources if installed (as another
poster said, freebsd-update will only update what you have installed - I
tend to always assume that everybody installs full sources, but that's
Therefore, you would need to reboot if the kernel changed.
Freebsd-update should tell you what will be changed after it finishes
the fetch. I don't recall if it also tells you what it installed.
If it tells you it updated /boot/kernel/kernel, you should reboot. If
you are running a custom kernel and you see files getting updated in
/usr/src/sys (mind you, not just the /usr/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh, but
other files too - newvers.sh is always updated to reflect the new -p# in
uname, if you rebuild your kernel) you should rebuild your custom kernel
