Yes, I believe it is quite normal to show only the major, "8", and minor, "0", numbers and not also the sub-minor (?) number, "1" in this case. However, if you evaluate SystemInformation then the result will show, among a great many other things, the full release ID, including the "22.214.171.124" (FOUR digits!). Also, you can use $VersionNumber to see that "1" separately from the $VersionNumber (which reports an 8., presumably meaning 8.0).
