I have noticed similar behavior. I have also noticed that if you do the 
'pkg version -vIL= ' *before* any portsnap or portmaster, it works as 
expected. I usually do just that, any package upgrades, followed by a 
portsnap to refresh the ports. I *only* use pkg by default for my 
package maintenance, however I do have flash support on board for Opera 
& Firefox, which necessitates some ports upgrades as well (flash support 
is *only* available as a port, not a pkg). I am on FreeBSD 
9.3-RELEASE-p5, BTW, w/ all packages upgraded last week. HTH & happy new 
year ....
