since the lang package itself has an explicit requires on the version

Why doesn't it make sense (apart from being unneeded)?

Recommend package =version does still allow to install the package with a
different version - doesn't it?

Yes, as the version is just recommended. But that's why the lang package
contains a requires to the main package, right?

Correct. So, you just confirmed that the "=version" is not needed in the
recommends ;)
