Hi Nemonekto, welcome to the forum.
You have either fumbled manually in the FreeCAD info or you have a very outdated version.
Deep in the FreeCAD source, there is a file (don't remember which, or where) that fills the version info with arbitrary values if the Version.h file is not built successfully. The default revision number used to be 5235, I believe it was changed recently.
I think this numbering happens with Linux distribution packages that strip the Git history from the FreeCAD source before compiling the package, or do not use Git as build dependency; as the mechanism to extract the FreeCAD info relies on Git tools.
