Yes, that's a feature...
make update has to build the packages to know whether or not it needs
to update them.
You can reverse the process by running pkg_add -ui with a SRC url in
This is usually rather painful, if you can live with compiled snapshot
packages, that's simpler.
Except for the few people who actually develop new ports and perform
quality insurance on the existing builds, it's much simpler to just use
the binary packages for most things, and only build from source when you
really have a good reason to do so.
