My update method is INSTALL-NetBSD from etcmanage, which:

  [first you release)]
  installs a new kernel

  unpacks all the sets which are not etc and xetc, which includes the
  module set

  puts etc and xetc in /usr/netbsd-etc and merges that to etc, not
  relevant to your question

basically the kernel is the combination of /netbsd and modules, and you
need to update both at once.
