seems that's only in bullseye/stable and only for debian_version. devuan_version shows chimaera.
in testing/ceres i get release name :

/etc/debian_version :
bookworm/sid
/etc/devuan_version :
chimaera/ceres

edit] hm, chimaera should be daedalus, no?

Not sure if this is a Devuan topic. I guess this file is a copy of the corresponding file from Debian. Just verified with a Bullseye installation in my VBox. There I also get 11.2.

In my daedalus install, /etc/debian_version says "bookworm/sid". I think they switch to numbers when it goes stable, so it shows which point-release you are at.
