comment Does tying a knot in a power cord provide any protection against lightning?
I think I may know the origin of this: when you have a cable going down the outside of a building and then through a hole in the wall, such as an aerial cable, you put a loop in it to prevent water from running down the outside of the cable into the building. Since aerials make good lightning conductors it could be easy for people to get the wrong idea about why it is done.

The string output by "vcgencmd version" can also be found by running "strings start.elf | grep VC_BUILD_ID_VERSION" so yes it is a firmware version.

The version comes from the commit ID of the private source code repository used to build the firmware. But that doesn't help answer the question at all.
