Have you verified in /etc/freebsd-update.conf that "src"
is definitely part of what should be updated?

I assume the correct targets "buildkernel" and "installkernel"
have been used. ;-)

Attention: Into single-user mode.

Into multi-user mode again.

Again, verify your configuration. Compare your steps with the
comment header of /usr/src/Makefile which illustrates the
exact procedure; from a (dated) 8-STABLE installation:

 1.  `cd /usr/src'       (or to the directory containing your source tree).
 2.  `make buildworld'
 3.  `make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE'     (default is GENERIC).
 4.  `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE'   (default is GENERIC).
      [steps 3. & 4. can be combined by using the "kernel" target]
 5.  `reboot'        (in single user mode: boot -s from the loader prompt).
 6.  `mergemaster -p'
 7.  `make installworld'
 8.  `make delete-old'
 9.  `mergemaster'            (you may wish to use -i, along with -U or -F).
10.  `reboot'
11.  `make delete-old-libs' (in case no 3rd party program uses them anymore)
