As I now understand it, Gnulib filevercmp is intended to be consistent with Debian's version comparison (this is documented in filevercmp.c), so GNU Bug#35939 is therefore based on a misunderstanding, as Gnulib filevercmp is implementing the Debian spec correctly for this test case.
Perhaps the coreutils manual could be improved to make this all clearer, and perhaps it should refer to the Debian manual if it doesn't already.
