Package version not expanded when variable stored in git

We recently enabled version control (git) for the variables stored in Octopus.

We have diffrent packages we deploy depending on the channel selected on the deployment screen.

Before moving the variables to git, upon selecting the different channels the package name and number would update accordingly.

After the moving the variable to git, the #{WebsitePackageId} is not expanded nor is the latest version showing.

If clicking on the “select version” version button. There are no packages showing.

Again the #{WebsitePackageId} variable is not expended as it should.

If we enter the version manually in “Enter a version” field it is working as expected.

Is this a bug or are we missing something obvious?
