Unless you explicitly override it in setup.hint.

setup.hint files are hints to upset (the script which makes setup.ini).

If you hint to it that curr is 21.2-11, then it will believe you.

IIRC, explicit versions are only required in setup.hint if:
 - there is a test package
 - the upstream package version numbers are too weird for upset to decide
which is current on its own.
