this basically bricked a remote system (luckily I had OOB access).

First, freebsd-update bricked the update to 13 as it copied a half kernel over but the modules failed to load due to version symbol mismatch (what?). Then I did the regular kernel/world build and install, followed by etcupdate.

I have a sleep in /etc/rc.d/netif (phys link takes too long to come up), etcupdate entered the EDITOR to fix up the conflict, then I marked as resolved.
Rebooted and:
Starting devd.
