Looks like OpenSSL changed their compatibility guarantees between 1.1
and 3: https://www.openssl.org/policies/releasestrat.html

"As of release 3.0.0, the OpenSSL versioning scheme is changing to a
more contemporary format: MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH

With this format, API/ABI compatibility will be guaranteed for the same
MAJOR version number. Previously we guaranteed API/ABI compatibility
across the same MAJOR.MINOR combination."

Our check only implements the latter.
