That's OK. The "about" application hasn't been updated it seems. Run rpm -q gnome-shell and gnome-shell --version in a terminal. The version shown there is the one you're running.

I’m not sure how the over-all GNOME version, shown by Settings/Details is defined. Shell is only one component of course. This confusion has been noted a couple of times in the Fedora Forums too; there might even have been a clarification as to how Details determines the version…
