Yeah, I was just using syspatch. It was user error. One machine would install the SP kernel even after reverting all the patches and reapplying. My other MP machines would syspatch with the MP kernel just fine. It turns out that on the first machine, I had built and installed the stable MP kernel by mistake before syspatching so I had it in my head that it was an MP machine. It isn't. syspatch just uses `sysctl -n hw.ncpufound` to determine whether to install SP or MP, not which kernel was installed before patching which seems reasonable.
