This is not something to be worried about. All backends have their own
version, independent of the sane-backends version. The epson2 backend
for example is at 1.0.124!
The scanimage utility gets it version directly from sane-backends, hence
1.0.27git for a development version after 1.0.27.
Some backends, and probably third party ones in particular, use the
version of the sane-backend's release that they were built against.
Hope this clarifies,
