This is because svnadmin verify doesn't change anything and only
replacing the binaries won't either upgrade your repositories.
Upgrading them is a separate process, where you have to options:
svnadmin upgrade will just upgrade the repositories to the most
current version your binaries are capable of, but only with doing the
most minimal work needed, therefore you won't benefit of the new
improvements with the old versions. svnadmin dump & load will upgrade
you repositories with improvements for all your old versions, for
example less occupied space due to enabled rep-sharing. svnadmin
upgrade is pretty fast, svnadmin dump & load won't be in most cases,
of course depending on your repository sizes.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
