why use uname -ra show version different use cat /var/db/freebsd-update/tag

I think you are right about am running p5:

garfield ~ # cat /var/db/freebsd-update/tag
freebsd-update|amd64|8.2-RELEASE|5|d500db1fa58e4ad4f33a16ce5c61dcef9c039a96eaadbb97d217881fbe2508b8|1343779200

But I think its strange when i type:

garfield ~ # uname -mrs
FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE-p3 amd64

It says I’m running p3?

If you want to see right patch level (shown by uname); do recompile system kernel (GENERIC). Short howto;

cd /usr/src
make buildkernel
make installkernel
reboot

uname -mrs
