pre-update to 12.1 now and fully update later?

Is it possible to update 11.3 to 12.1 pre-release now, run mergemaster and expect to see all the currently relevant config changes applied, and then later when 12.1 RELEASE comes out run the source update again, use mergemaster again to fix up any changes that occurred during this time and release time?

Not worrying about generic bugs in the current state of 12.1 but more concerned about how mergemaster works in pre-releases vs regular releases and those interim updates.

mergemaster is designed for that. But you can wait for BETA1 and make binary update with freebsd-update.
