I think what Ian said is pretty clear:

2.12 refers to the "program" version number. The program includes the
updating and scanning engines, as well as configuration variables.

1.999 refers to the "signature files" version number. This refers to the
data files that include malware signatures or patterns.

NOD is not the only product that has separate reference numbers for data
files and for executables.
