The confusion comes from the fact that the original behavior of freebsd-update was NOT to update the kernel binaries if a custom kernel was detected. FYI my /etc/freebsd-update.conf has # Components of the base system which should be kept updated. #Components src world kernel Components src

As it seems that freebsd-update works by comparing a hash of /boot/kernel/kernel with the GENERIC kernel's hash I checked the md5 and sha1 hash of /boot/kernel/kernel and /boot/GENERIC/kernel.
