Compare what you have locally with what's logged recently at 
<https://cgit.freebsd.org/ports/log/>.

Take today's 
<https://cgit.freebsd.org/ports/commit/?id=6fc82805993ae6fd2687087a5fc16d6de2960334>; 
for example. If you run portsnap then:

grep 21.2.0 /usr/ports/games/fs2open/Makefile

– a truly up-to-date ports tree will have the string (21.2.0) in the file.

Rewind to 7th April, 
<https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2021-April/293732.html>; 
there was an announcement of work in progress and for some time after 
that, I found that things were not truly up-to-date following use of 
portsnap. 17th April 
<https://forums.FreeBSD.org/threads/ports-transitioned-to-git.79598/post-506904>; 
things seemed to be better, I have not checked since then (I now use Git 
instead of portsnap).
