Indeed that's the origin of the problem.

I don't know exactly how `org-version.el` is created and how the release
version is extracted&inserted, so I'm not sure how to fix it.

The approach I'd advocate would be to use `package-get-version` (or
something similar since `package-get-version` doesn't exist in
Emacs<27).
