As long as there are sub-packages, there is the potential for multiple
Version: tags. So there is no obvious choice for automagically choosing
a conventional value for %{version}

OTOH, its rather trivial to do
   %define my_one_true_version  1.2.3_whatever_you_want
    ...
    Version: %{my_one_true_version}

and then use %{my_one_true_version} instead of %{version}

Alternatively, if you simply _MUST_ use %{version}, the value is likely
to be the same as the last
    Version: 1.2.3_whatever_you_want
parsed in the spec file. You can arrange your sub-package stanzas so that the Version: you
want in %{version} appears last.
