I will see what I can do on this...

I don't know much about HardenedBSD and it userland differences with
FreeBSD, if any, but there are "automatic package updates supported"
with FreeBSD with pkg(8)

The other inaccuracies are about OpenBSD which does release binaries
usually within 24 hours of a port update, and the port updates are very
quick (ty, Pascal), pkg updates can be easily automated and binary
updates for the base OS are supported on -stable with syspatch(8).

What is exactly meant by "multi-instance support"? Running multiple Tor
daemons?  (the language of the cloud invading operating systems...)
