That's normal. The 1.6U that you see there is from uname(1) on the host
system, which, as you say, is running 1.6U. If you were to
kernel=GENERIC, copy the new kernel into place, reboot, and
tools you would see 1.6ZC there instead of 1.6U. It's just a pathname.
It isn't important.

If you want to see what kernel version will be generated by your source
tree (not very useful, really, as much can change during the lifetime of
that version), look in sys/conf/
