postinstall is often lagging, unfortunately. :(
Try running etcupdate(8) after running postinstall. These days I
guess I really only use postinstall to remove obsolete files
(automatic from sets) and may be for non-trivial updates that involve
files being moved (this type of changes are usually reflected in
postinstall). Otherwise I use etcupdate - that basicly just diffs
/etc and etc.tgz
