You're conflating two different issues. If you install a fresh copy of FMCB/FHDB, or overwrite existing CNFs, the version number will be displayed correctly on the hacked OSD. If you don't overwrite existing CNFs, then of course it will still be saying the same version that you were previously showing, as it didn't touch the CNF. The issue you're referring to is if you go into the configurator and reset to default from within there, it will still say 1.8c.

Would be a nice feature if the installer checked for the HDDOSD and chose between a ROM OSD variant of the CNF file (basically the default FREEMCB.CNF except saying Free HDBoot instead of Free McBoot) and the existing FREEHDB.CNF.
This is a very minor issue, however, but it does look a tiny bit unsightly on a fresh ROM OSD-based installation of FHDB.
