In section 23.2.3.2 of the FreeBSD handbook, I'm unclear whether I'm supposed to run pkg-static upgrade -f OR portmaster -af (either) or if I'm supposed to run pkg-static upgrade -f AND portmaster -af (both). I've read this section over a few times and it is still unclear to me.

It's "OR". A pkg-static upgrade -f reinstalls everything using packages. A portmaster -af reinstalls everything using ports. They both reinstall everything, how they do it is different.
