What makes you think the beta version was downloaded? What you see in
`port list macports` is just what could be installed, if you ran `port
install macports`. However,

The "MacPorts" port is only used to build the binary installer packages
that will be available for download from the website. Changes in the
MacPorts port do not affect your MacPorts installation. Only selfupdate
will change your version of base. You are thus /not/ running the beta,
unless you manually installed it.
