The 8.1.1911 versioning is actually an implementation detail of how the buildsystem puts things in place. We need a package that provides some basic system-release functionality (like /etc/system-release on the filesystem). We're working on removing as much of this style of versioning in CentOS Stream, because CentOS Stream does not have 'releases' it's intended to just roll forward. 

Right now, for example, you should see some content in CentOS Stream that is intended for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3

Can you describe a little more about where you're seeing 8.1.1911, so we can make sure we have it covered in our versioning plans?
