I think that's not quite right; your patch seems to change the docs for -u, not -U. "pkg_add -u" seems to unset automatic. (I really don't understand what it actually does beyond the package named, and I wonder if it should be retired in the age of package managers.) "pkg_add -U" doesn't touch automatic. Also, it does add the package if it's not already there, and I think that's a bug - it should fail. Basically my view is that there should be a replace operation and an add operation, and (more softly) each should fail if the expected conditions aren't met.
