Try running pkg_chk -uq and see what you get.
pkg_rr option "-u" is supposed to select for replacing mismatched
packages (which is obtained via pkg_chk).
packages that are "unsafe_depends" are always selected for replacing.
packages that are "unsafe_deepends_strict" are selected with "-s".
These are packages where a dependency was replaced, but with the same
version. In theory, no replacing is necessary, and I basically believe
that to be true, but -s can recover from missing revbumps.
I would suggest that you add -v and safe the output, and read the
MISMATCH/UNSAFE lines and see if they makes sense.
If you have found a pkg_rr bug, I very much want to know about it, but I
am guessing you have something odd locally as this is the first report
