Be careful there.... man PKGBUILD:

All options and directives for the split packages default to the global
values given within the PKGBUILD. However, some of these can be
overridden within each split package’s packaging function. The
following variables can be overridden: pkgdesc, license, groups,
depends, optdepends, provides, conflicts, replaces, backup, options and

So overriding pkgver and pkgrel may not work as expected.
