The concept is still flawed if you pick some arbitrary time interval
for the comparison since the distros that backport fixes into the
released app versions will tend to tend to have less activity as
the distro ages.  That is, many problems may be found and fixed soon
after release, but finding new ones will eventually taper off and
as the developers move on to new versions there is less interest in
fixing old ones.

However, almost by definition, fedora uses a fast release cycle and
lots of updates and Centos has much less churn - but not quite to the
point of Debian stable where there is never even a schedule for the
next version.
