Because jails do not have their own kernels (they all share the host's
kernel), ezjail-admin update -u would not require a reboot.
Presumably, you rebooted after 'freebsd-update fetch update', if it
touched the kernel. Restarting the jails should be enough. As to the
safety of doing the update on running jails, I do not do so, as a
matter of prudence.
