Aarch64 gcc on L5 is different version..?

I was bored an tried to compile stuff on the L5. To my surprise it gave an error about gcc being of wrong version. The L5 PureOs repo installs Debian’s (although version numbers seem to be identical), which is in conflict with kernel. Is this just an oddity?

What exactly was the error?

warning: the compiler differs from the one used to build the kernel
  The kernel was built by: aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc (Debian 10.2.1-6) 10.2.1 20210110
  You are using:           gcc (Debian 10.2.1-6) 10.2.1 20210110

Seems like a false warning due to the way our kernel package does cross-compilation. Should be safe to ignore.
