Missing 'build number' on full reset, are permissions screwed?

I know this sounds so stupid but I seem to be missing 'build number' in my System -> About. I'm completely bewildered as I've been TWRPing mobiles for years but this one defeats me. When I go to the top of the Setting dialogue there's a Search box, entering 'build number' into there give me 'no results found' . I'm on MIUI and Android 9 PKQ1 190321.001
This is after a full reset.
Is this a permission thang or am I going crazy? It's just sooo weird..


Update. Tapping on MIUI Global in the About Phone section gave me Developer options. Phew!
