Nope, not 100% sure of this but I strongly suspect this is the case.  We 
recently had to update the BIND package on RHEL6 to address this 


and in the process of upgrading, were given 
bind-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6:32.i686.  It was while looking at the source for 
that package (bind-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6.src.rpm) that I found the file 

According to the changelog on that package, they changed the numbering 
from 9.7 to 9.8  starting in February of this year:

2012-02-15 12:00:00
.... 32:9.8.2-0.3.rc1:

2011-12-20 12:00:00
.... 32:9.7.3-10.P3:
