Shouldn't be. The date is passed to the cvsup server, and it's the
cvsup server's clock which would be used (if needed: the cvsup server
will be comparing timestamps written into the CVS ,v files in the
repository) -- as you seem to be using your own private cvsup server
rather than one of the FreeBSD ones, check with the admins of that
machine to be sure that the clock is set correctly.

Note that if your system clock on your own machine is not set
correctly, then while you can cvsup(1), you'll probably have all sorts
of trouble actually compiling.

About the only thing I can think of that may be affecting you is that
cvsup may not believe it 'owns' all of the files under /usr/src -- see
http://www.cvsup.org/faq.html#caniadopt and the following questions 11
and 12.  The instructions date back a few years, but it should be
fairly obvious how to adapt them for RELENG_4_8.
