That depends on whether you're using local mode or client/server mode. 
In local mode (which is how CVS was originally designed), it works
exactly like the manual says.  In client/server mode (which was grafted
on after the fact, and after the CVS manual was written), only files
that are actually sent to the server are considered.  I've updated the
manual to note that fact.

The "correct" major revision number is whatever CVS chooses to assign --
revision numbers are for CVS's internal use, you should not care what
they are.  Use tags if you want meaningful information.
