Since you listed the LALAppsVCSInfo.h file in lalapps_version_SOURCES
variable, that header got included in your distribution tarball.  It
therefore was not generated at all during the build done by distcheck,
so nothing needed to be cleaned (in fact, it would be a mistake for
distclean to remove it in this case).

You should probably either list the header in MAINTAINERCLEANFILES so
that "make maintainer-clean" will delete it, or, if including the header
in your distribution was unintentional, you should remove it from
