Certainly they do, which is why I mentioned BAO in particular.  The lack
of a version increment means that users will not learn that the new .conf
now contains metadata which affects whether the module will be seen in
module lists that are specific to newly-defined module categories.

The only reason it might not matter for BAO at this moment is because
it's been in beta purgatory for nearly a year and only sword-devel sorts
of people have installed it.
