The config for freebsd-update is in /etc/freebsd-update.conf The
Compenents part determines what is updated and src is one available
component.

Normally freebsd-update will install minor updates to the installed
system. You can use "freebsd-update -r 9.2-RELEASE upgrade" to upgrade
to new release versions.

Chapter 23.2 of the FreeBSD Handbook offers more detail.
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/updating-upgrading-freebsdupdate.html

A good way to identify your running system - uname -a

As for getting your source -
stable/9 contains updates and features being tested for next release
releng/9.1 contains updates that get sent through freebsd-update.
release/9.1.0 is a frozen copy at time of 9.1.0 release
