Thanks for looking closely. I double checked upstream more closely and it's in
3.27.4 not 3.26. So you're right it needs to be brought into bionic separately
(or gnome-software in bionic needs to move to 3.27.x)

Report fwupd version in user agent
Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
Status in gnome-software source package in Xenial:
Some firmware updates fail require a recent version of fwupd to work.
Upstream has requested we update the user agent sent in HTTP requests so that
they can stop sending firmware to clients that may not work.
Check with the fwupd server that the correct user agent is being sent.
Low. The fix is simply to add to the user-agent string used in HTTP requests.
There are some situations that LVFS shouldn't be offering firmware to certain
Upstream is going to use the user agent for filtering these firmware
offerings and it would be good if gnome-software can report the user agent.
The following has been added to the gnome 3.20 tree:
Can this please be backported to xenial?
Bionic can already report this as part of 3.26 gnome-software.
