I don’t think it’s possible for a version number to capture this at all. Better to use a script to capture the state of the system as needed. I.e. write build info to a file on target, and then combine that with a query of the package manager if you use packages for update distribution (though I wouldn’t advise use of packages for update distribution at all, that’s a different discussion :).
