I've found that AppConstants.MOZ_APP_BUILDID (in obj-*/mobile/android/base/generated/preprocessed/org/mozilla/gecko/ differs from the actual build ID under obj-*/config/buildid. The former ID is used in the Android layer, the latter in the Gecko layer.

It looks like the issue is that the build process is generating before updating the build ID. Most certainly an upstream issue, Mozilla probably didn't notice it so far.

Turns out the build number is fine if you do a clobber, i.e. full rebuild. Relatively annoying, but it's better than to mess around with the build system.
