"The Distro Tracking Fields
(meta/conf/distro/include/distro_tracking_fields.inc) is a location
for sharing information about the status of recipes and tracking
version information. Not all of this information can be generated
automatically (yet), so the manual editing is needed."

i don't see that file so what's the story?
Why don't you use git log if you're interested in stories?

git log -- meta/conf/distro/include/distro_tracking_fields.inc

distro_tracking_fields: move to meta-yocto as seperate files

We are going to take a phased approach of breaking up the
distro_tracking_fields, first is to remove it from oe-core,
then create new files in meta-yocto. We are doing this because
the distro_tracking_fields is getting unweildly and some of
the data can be part of a burn down list instead continually
stored, thus it will get split up.

./meta-yocto/conf/distro/include/upstream_tracking.inc
ah, quite right, my fault for not poking further. in any event, it
would seem that that wiki page could use some updating.
