Thank you for the clarification. It does have some significance.

I (wrongly) assumed it was meant for identification. In fact if the
same build generates the same sequence then they are synonyms and can
be used for some sort of identification (as I just explained in a
previous email).

I realize from your answer that the code was generated simply to make
the folder name unique.

But this is irrelevant since the installer folder will no longer be created.
