There is versioning inside the FST, but thats only a part of the
suggester format.

We've changed the suggester formats in incompatible ways before: their
is no backwards compatibility guarantee for suggesters and we don't
test that.

mainly FST (unfortunately) has backwards compatibility because parts
of the official index format use it.
