Default NetBSD being a secure OS, yet having a large list of vulnerabilities in its software.

I know that in the NetBSD Guide, it says that NetBSD is a secure operating system, and I've never read anywhere on the internet that it isn't...
But with a huge list of vulnerabilites in its software and nothing being done (at least quickly) to patch them, how secure could it possibly be?
This is what I get when I run pkg_admin audit or audit-packages:
Code:
