Freebsd-update tool apply binary patches to your -RELEASE system and
GENERIC kernel.
Furthermore, sources are synced too (/usr/src) by default.
If you want to see the -p# increased, you have to recompile your
GENERIC kernel.
If you are using a custom kernel, you must recompile it to apply patches as
your sources are up-to-date. You will have the -p# increased too.

Kind regards,
Alexandre
