CentOS 8 Stream version (yum upgrade)

In a qemu VM I yum upgrade version 7.7 (i386) alt-arch which takes me to 7.8.2003 (/etc/redhat-release). But on another VM I also upgraded Stream the same way. The kernel version matches CentOS 8.2 (4.18.0-193.10.el8.x86_64) but /etc/redhat-release still shows 8.1.1911.

This is a minor issue. I'm just a little curious why this works a little differently in 8.1?

Because Stream doesn't really have a version number. It's 8.something at present but it's not the same as the any equivalent RHEL version so it cannot really be 8.1 or 8.2 or anything else.
