How to handle version numbers in Bamboo?

Using Bamboo, our build jobs compile version numbers into our actual program (We build an APK for Android) and also modify some other data files with the version number. The version number is generated via variables in the plan.

Deployment is confusing. You deploy previously completed builds, but Deployment Project settings also allow you to setup a versioning scheme. Why does the build process not use a versioning scheme? The Deployment project does not initiate a brand new build to use the scheme, so what is the purpose of the versioning settings in the deployment project? Those wouldn't be used since we already setup our version number during the build steps.

IMO, the end to end functionality of Bamboo's deployment projects just wasn't thought out very well. It leaves users wanting so much more and I'm not talking about bells & whistles. Seems it wasn't created with a users perspective in mind, which makes it extremely frustrating to use.
