[Pdns-users] irregular version string - {packages from Repo}?

Dear all

recently i downloaded the Debian 9 packages from http://repo.powerdns.com

Specifically I use:
"PowerDNS Authoritative Server - master branch"
to further document this, I executed to following two commands:

# dpkg -l | grep power
ii  pdns-server  0.0.2400g4c928be-1pdns.stretch amd64

# pdns_server --version
Aug 14 20:45:46 PowerDNS Authoritative Server 0.0.2400g4c928be (C) 
2001-2018 PowerDNS.COM BV

what makes me wonder is the Version-String.
Is 0.0.2400g4c928be correct? Shouldn't it be 4.1.3 or alike?

This version string causes explicit problems in interaction with nsedit
(https://github.com/tuxis-ie/nsedit). nesdit checks the version number 
and expects a 4.

any comments are highly appreciated.
best regards
