You should see at least the files which you
added freshly to the session. Whether the old
ISO tree was loaded depends much on how you
created the new session.
With xorriso it is loaded by -dev or -indev.
With mkisofs it is loaded with -M ... -C ...

Afaik, k3b uses as burn engines cdrecord for
CD and growisofs for DVD. cdrskin could possibly
replace cdrecord for CD data and audio. k3b has
a menu where you can set the burn programs.
An example with quite outdated k3b is at
I have no idea how a cdrecord dev= address looks
on FreeBSD. But the k3b debug window should tell
all options used for "cdrecord" and "mkisofs".

Have a nice day :)
