Doh! Yes, I guess I was reading too quickly. And of course it makes sense that I'd not need to fsck and mount things if I just "drop" into single-user mode. But I wasn't yet testing a new kernel... I haven't yet made the buildworld target. I see later on, though, where I'm supposed to boot -s after installing a newly built kernel.
