Looks perfectly fine.  The -k in that command returns the kernel patch version
and the -u returns the userland patch version.  It is common for the numbers to
diverge, since there is rarely the same number of patches to the kernel as the
userland.  (Caveat:  I don't have my Freebsd machine with me now, but I'm pretty
sure kernel p2 and userland p8 are the most recent patch versions.  Someone else
can advise if this is incorrect.)
