According to the World of Google:
This has been an issue since 2010 and as best I can tell, still remains unfixed.
Would be pleased to stand corrected on this matter.

  Strange versioning in 18.04 Bionic Beaver

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  System: Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS Alpha 2 installed within Citrix
  XenServer 7.0.

  Installed Citrix' 'guest-tools', confirmed on status page as having
  v7.0 tools working.

  Ran 'apt update', 'apt dist-upgrade' and was offered 'xe-guest-
  utilities' as one of the many packages being installed.  Cancelled the
  upgrade to 'apt show' that package and found it to be v7.4.  Happy
  that it was a newer version, started the upgrade && rebooted.

  Upon booting, the status page revealed v6.6 was installed, surely a
  backwards step and in spite of v7.4 having just been installed!

  I then checked with Citrix and they're only up to XenServer 7.3!

  All being said and done, the client tools allow interaction (ie,
  XenCenter initiated clean shutdown and reboot* requests, virtual
  drivers for Net and Blk front devices detected).  However, the
  versioning seems awry.  Is having v6.6 on v7.0 going to have an impact
  on performance, say for example, by using outdated APIs?

  Looking forward to clarification on the subject.

  Ubuntu and XenServer fanboi :-)
