No. I usually see some change in the permissions 
(/var/named/chroot/var/named/ loses group write and named logs some 
complaints but still works) when updating named. I think I've seen this 
happen several times and with the last update as well. I've not taken this 
serious as it didn't stop named from working. I assume the write 
permissions are only necessary for client DNS updates which I do not use.
I remember there was a more serious problem a year or so ago, when an 
update stopped named from working because it overwrote some files.
So, the upgrading experience has been less smooth with named than with 
other packages, but I haven't seen what you experienced.
