I'm sure if Jobs was here, he'd fire the guy/girl who made this mistake.

This is from 10.7.4

The Finder version number has nothing to do with the version number of OS X.

Finder is just an app. I recall that in Snow Leopard 10.6.6 the Finder is 10.6.7.

Yes it does.

Actually, it's not true that the Finder version number will always be the same as the Mac OS X version number.

The Finder and Mac OS X version numbers aren't always the same.

But it IS true that for any given Mac OS X version, the version of the Finder will be a particular version number (but not necessarily the SAME number).

So when you upgrade to Mac OS X 10.7.3, the Finder was 10.7.3 because a Finder update was part of of the 10.7.3 update. And sometimes the Finder version get's ahead of the Mac OS X version.

But apparently there were no Finder updates in Mac OS X 10.7.4, so the Finder version remained at 10.7.3.
