Yes, that file does not get updated... that's written at install time.  You're up to date though, so if you want to you can just ignore that.

They're pretty much the same thing IRIC.  Just enable the 7.2 stable repos and do 'slapt-get -u; slapt-get --upgrade; slapt-get -i --no-upgrade kernel4.4 kernel4.4-modules kernel4.4-headers"
You will also need to 'grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg' after that.

strange, Version of VL  info shows  still 7.2 stdrc3.1
