do I reboot for this one, or not?
The kernel is changed, so yes.

Thanks. I had guessed a reboot was needed, but the advisory only mentioned a
reboot in the context of building the kernel from sources. Hopefully, when a
reboot is required, future advisories will mention it in the freebsd-update(8)

They normally do for these cases, but please keep in mind that the
security officer had issued three consecutive security advisories.
Unfortunately, he's only human, too. :-)
