Yes.  The 'uname -v' command prints out the kernel version.  Linux has
traditionally used the date the kernel was compiled as the version.
Therefore you are seeing the 'linux kernel version' which is the date
when the kernel was compiled.

It does look strange.  But the kernel version string can be anything.
