Patching and bug fixes continue after a release. If you look at the time and date stamps for pkgsrc_2016Q3, you will see entries that occurred several months after the release of 2016Q3.

A useful mailing list to follow is Pkgsrc bulk build reports. You can scroll back through the archives to get a sense of what is "stable".

If you goal is to install a working Xfce4 desktop, at this time your highest likelyhood of success is with 2016Q3. If you want to help the NetBSD pkgsrc community debug their build scripts, attention is now focused on 2016Q4.
