This is partially correct. The output of the following commands:
  • $ uname -a
  • $ sysctl kern.version
...will display nothing when running -release. In comparison, running -stable which will appear as 4.3-stable or 4.3-current when running -current.
Why i have GENERIC ?
...because the standard configuration file for the kernel is /usr/src/sys/arch/i386/conf/GENERIC assuming you are running on the i386 platform. The default configuration of the kernel can be found in /usr/src/sys/arch/`uname -m`/conf/GENERIC on all platforms.
