No.  No such thing as "4.9-CURRENT."  RELENG_4 will update to 4-STABLE,
which means it includes whatever updates have been made to -STABLE since
the 4.9-RELEASE snapshot (4.x-RELEASE being a snapshot of 4-STABLE).

4.9 isn't a branch itself, it's a snapshot of the -STABLE branch. 
RELENG_4_9 contains only critical updates from the 4.9-RELEASE snapshot,
primarily if not exclusively security updates.
