My guess is that they can and they do.
But the extra versioning is a further safety check: if something was missed in
the update, like for example some code compiled by the user (regardless of use
of package management), it will necessarily stop working. And if it used
package management, it will not install, or it will prevent upgrade until it
is provided in a new version.
