I think it would better to look at it this way: you can't apply a
patch without stopping and restarting whatever the patch is part of.
For the kernel, that obviously does require rebooting. But it depends
on what the patch is; security advisories usually describe how to
apply fixes or workarounds. http://www.freebsd.org/security/#adv
