App cache (metadata?) isn't reliably refreshing

This is minor but-

 

Alfred 5.0.2.2073

 

I updated (for example) OneDrive.app today, the new version is 22.166.0807. Get info shows this:

But Alfred still has the old version in his cache:

I tried pressing the Clear Application Cache button, but that had no visible effect.

I've definitely seen it before with other apps. I never bothered to report it because it was a small thing. I didn't know this data was being returned from an API. That's interesting- so I guess the Finder either uses a different API, or retrieves it some other way.

Just tried it again with another app that indicated an update was available (Itsycal)

 

Took this screenshot BEFORE updating

Then I updated... and captured this

...But Alfred still reported 0.13.2🤔

 

Then I tried quitting and relaunching Alfred, and the info updated.  This reminds me a lot of a similar issue I had a while back with stale Contact info being shown.
