The NetBSD source tree can be viewed at:
The "src" tree is the complete NetBSD operating system.

Within the "src" tree: you
will find the "sys" tree which contains the NetBSD kernel ports.

The "src" tree minus the "src/sys" tree is "userland" portion of NetBSD.
The "userland" is a reference to the non-kernel components which run in
"user" mode rather than "kernel" mode.

Read "Building a release", a release includes both kernel & "userland":
and "Updating an existing system" right below.
