Sometimes, but not always, the version contains the word "dirty" (Such as the current "version 3.13.0-72-g031446-dirty"). Does this mean there are known bugs - or suspected bugs - or what?

No, it just means your repository is not clean. It can be modified
tracked (by git) files or new files not known and handled by git.

To find out more about your situation run

git status

It will tell you about the situation you are in.
