base @2.4.1 is not always showing outdated ports

I've been noticing this for a short while now, on a couple of different machines.

After macports updates, not all the outdated ports are indicated. For example I have this version of this port installed:

$ port -v installed gstreamer1-gst-plugins-bad
The following ports are currently installed:
  gstreamer1-gst-plugins-bad @1.12.1_3 platform='darwin 16' archs='x86_64' date='2017-08-13T09:14:31-0700'

The current version in the portindex is:

$ port info gstreamer1-gst-plugins-bad
gstreamer1-gst-plugins-bad @1.12.2 (gnome)

but the port is not listed as outdated

$ port outdated
No installed ports are outdated.

my sources.conf has no extraneous info:

# For proper functionality of various resources (port groups, mirror
# sites, etc.), the primary MacPorts source must always be tagged
# "[default]", even if switched from the default "rsync://" URL.

rsync:// [default]}}}

Is it something to do with not rebuilding the portindex perhaps?

Oh, damn. Please close this ticket. I see what has gone on here. I have this port installed, but it's not active. That's why it is not showing up for updating. Sorry for the noise.
