eselect kernel list shows 3.7 correct? That won't change unless you go to a 3.6 or 3.8, something different of 3.7

sounds like it, but kernel revisions 3.7.x should automatically roll in, kernel-switcher would be for like when 3.8 is available

If you upgraded your kernel to 3.7 with kernel-switcher and ran your entropy updates and upgrades, you are running the 3.7.4 kernel.
eselect kernel list will still show something like [2] linux-3.7.0-sabayon * but equo query -vq installed linux-sabayon shows the actual version/revision: sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-3.7.4.
You don't have to use kernel-switcher to upgrade the kernel from 3.7 to 3.7.4 this will be done by a regular entropy update/upgrade.
But you will need the kernel-switcher to upgrade to 3.8 once released.
