Comment (by malco_2001):

 After removing the ext* files the pcbsd updater said no updates available.

 Then I tried freebsd-update fetch

 [root at jm-desk-pc] ~# freebsd-update fetch
 Looking up fbsd-update.pcbsd.org mirrors... none found.
 Fetching metadata signature for 10-STABLE from fbsd-update.pcbsd.org...
 done.
 Fetching metadata index... done.
 Inspecting system... done.
 Preparing to download files... done.

 The following files are affected by updates, but no changes have
 been downloaded because the files have been modified locally:
 /etc/mail/freebsd.cf
 /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
 /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf
 /root/.cshrc
 /root/.profile
 /var/db/mergemaster.mtree

 The following files will be added as part of updating to 10-STABLE-p6:
 /usr/share/man/man2/extattr_delete_link.2.gz
 /usr/share/man/man2/extattr_get_link.2.gz

 Here are the results from freebsd-update install

 [root at jm-desk-pc] ~# freebsd-update install
 Installing updates...ln: ///usr/share/man/man2/extattr.2.gz: No such file
 or directory
 ln: ///usr/share/man/man2/extattr.2.gz: No such file or directory
 chflags: ///usr/share/man/man2/extattr_delete_link.2.gz: No such file or
 directory
 chflags: ///usr/share/man/man2/extattr_get_link.2.gz: No such file or
 directory

 The ext* files do not get recreated.
