DB2 on the iSeries doesn't follow the version number of the rest of the DB2 
family, it uses the OS version number.                  

This is because DB2 on the iSeries is an integral part of the OS.  It is not

and could not be a separate product.  Basically, OS/400 is built around and 
on top of an integral RDMS.  Originally, the RDBMS didn't have a name. 
Within the past few years, IBM has given it the DB2 name and worked toward 
having similar capabilities between DB2 UDB iSeries and the DB2 UDB product 
for other platforms. 

Go here for info about similarities and differences between DB2 on iSeries 
and the rest of the DB2 family.
