The rationale for this is as follows.
OpenBSD has a continuous evolution release model. The release numbers change twice a year like clockwork and reflect the release process phases rather than revolutionary changes of the platform (which are intentionally kept to a minimum). The system probably doesn't change radically enough to merit a release number in the os name here. OpenBSD is OpenBSD.
Notice also that the release number does not follow the major/minor convention, for obvious reasons. Release 5.0 was simply the next release after 4.9.

What issues are caused by having the number?
I'm sure no serious issues are involved.
