At least it worked months ago when I used pbulk.

There are lots of ways to get a list packages changed since the last
bulk build including pkg_update_src_summary/pkg_src_summary + pkg_cmp_summary.

Of course security fixes should NOT change ABI/API.

Is this documented/promised anywhere?

This was proposed and discussed months ago but nobody gave an answer
at that time.
