Isn't that the only useful information?

Well, different applications can be from different "bundles" or meta packages 
or containers as you say.
The package system probably has a reverse dependency graph that you could 

The closest thing without using the package information is to query the 
version for each program individually and hope that the application version 
and the "container" version are the same.
