They mean whatever the author wants them to mean.
one source hints major.minor.patch.build
The article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_versioning suggests that 3 levels are common, major.minor.patch .
If your own tracking uses fewer than 4 components, you can always use 0 for the trailing components.
