But as you said I am free to make the adjustment when I deem fit, thank you.
In July and Aug 2011, sysmerge execution was an automated component of the bsd.rd upgrade script. These days, the script merely recommends running sysmerge before placing the upgraded system into production.

The reason for the recommendation is the possibility that a significant change will render extant /etc or /var configuration files inoperative. Major changes of this type will be documented, however, and therefore it is wise to review the Following -current FAQ prior to upgrading to a new snapshot or rebuilding from source.
