I noticed this last night.  Pardus 2011RC:

When running the Package Manager, it updates, then gives me a list of about 59 updates.  All of the packages listed for update are the same version as already installed.

The very same question was asked at the Ozgurlukicin.com forums.
The answer was something like; "This is not a bug of the package manager, do not worry. These updates are due to some regulations and fine-tunings on the mentioned packages (so that they do their job better, in harmony with other parts of the system)."

After a quick read from work, if i understand it right, the same software version could have a different release number and the reason for the update?

Reasons could for example be:
bugfix in deployment script
changed default settings
