You may be confusing things because of a newer version.

That's just FSF revisionism.

It used to be called "Library" over "Lesser", in the original GPL2.

I suspect your other issues are similar "there's been different
versions over time" things. the address being one of them.

We've actually taken some of the FSF updates over the years ("19yy" ->
"<year>", and the address change) but the main COPYING file still
calls the LGPL the "GNU Library General Public License".

I refuse to change the original copyright wording due to idiotic
internal FSF politics that tried to change history.
