If you had a /boot/GENERIC directory, then it was upgraded.
If not, and you already compiled a kernel yourself before the second
freebsd-update install you still have a 7.0 kernel.
But after you run freebsd-update install for the second time the sources
are updated anyway, so you can build the kernel of your choice
