core – Is the information returned by get_bloginfo( ‘version’ ) always the same as the one in version.php?


In the WordPress Core, I see some cases doing:

$wp_version = get_bloginfo( 'version' );

And other cases doing:

// include an unmodified $wp_version
include( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/version.php' );

That comment about including an unmodified $wp_version makes me wonder what could make the first case return a different value than the second one.

Why would they be different?
