This is not weird at all. 

As Martin implies, this has all been asked and answered before, e.g. in

What -version 7- does is instruct that certain commands behave in
certain respects as they did in version 7. That does _not_ imply
automatically that anything introduced after version 7 can not be used.
If it did, programs used in e.g. Stata 10.1 would probably all have to
be -version 10.1-, and users would need to keep editing many old .ado
files when they installed them. Manifestly, neither is the case.

One thing is weird, though: spatreg.ado says "version 7" at the top of
-program-s. I do not want to reignite the debate about the meaning of
-version- statement, but it seems weird that it is able to run -mata-
stuff along the way...
