If you really need this I would consider setting some set of variables.
Currently GRUB2 provides grub_cpu and grub_platform. So, why not set e.g.
grub_version, grub_patchlevel, grub_sublevel and grub_extraversion (I have
taken the names from Linux kernel but we can use anything else which make
sense). This way you can get what you need using "set" command and scripts
may use variables to identify GRUB2 version. Ahhh... What about grub_commit
if it is available too?
