No. Rawhide is rolling and the version may change over time.

So is openSUSE:Factory/Tumbleweed, yet this one has a version.

Keep in mind that %{fedora_version} is an OBS-specific macro, whereas
%{fedora} is the one provided by the distribution. Both are supported
by OBS, but the latter is native to the distribution.

So %fedora is safe to be used instead of %fedora_version? It will also
be expanded and removed in the specfile of the src.rpm?

Not in rawhide (since the macros are processed at rpmbuild, but not obs-build),
but in released versions, it should.

As for Factory/Tumbleweed, it's easier for them to do that because
the distro is engineered within the build.o.o instance itself.
Rawhide is not, which means it must be externally tracked.

I guess it wouldn't be too much work if the one who imports next
released Fedora XX also increases Rawhide's version macro.

Otherwise it could be also ok to set fedora_version=99 forever for

If someone on the build-o-o team would prefer to track it more closely,
then they could watch the Fedora schedules for the branching point and bump
the %{fedora} and %{fedora_version} macros if they want to include them in the
rawhide definitions, along with adding the branched release target.
