This is what the manual has to say about this topic. Does it help you with your answer?

Also, consider that as an application developer, you will not use versions . . .
Have a good one

Also, in 40 years as an operator/data controller/production support analyst/operations analyst/programmer etc I have never needed to use a "version". I have only done so in self-education.
