I think you misunderstand what -current is.

The -current branch of the tree is where all development occurs. This branch is constantly changing. And it will continue to change as long as the OpenBSD Project continues.

If a particular development is not a new feature or new function, but is a security or stability fix, and:
  • if that fix does not require any library change
  • if that fix does not have any infrastructure change
  • if it is deemed significant
  • it may be worked up for the most recent -release and previous -release, as an entry in the -stable branch
  • if that fix is deemed critical, the patch will have individualized installation documentation written, and the errata web pages will be updated appropriately.
