Do you have any ideas please? 
Probably the image manifest is what you are looking for?


The manifest file (.manifest) resides in the same directory as the root
filesystem image. This file lists out, line-by-line, the installed

The file contents look like this:

dropbear armv7at2hf-neon 2019.78-r0
dtc armv7at2hf-neon 1.6.0-r0
e2fsprogs armv7at2hf-neon 1.45.4-r0

Thank you
