Bingo.  BUILD for *us* is something that we increment when changes
on our end would result in changes to the resulting package.  For
example, if we make edits to README, we would not increment BUILD,
while modification of an installed config file would result in a
BUILD increment.

However, BUILD for *you* (and other sysadmins) is whatever *you*
want it to be.
