The same string "6.3.0-rc2" is repeated in the file name.
The first one is what Debian calls the ABI version, and the
second one is the version of the package.
They are usually different on real Debian kernels.

LOCALVERSION affects the former, and KDEB_PKGVERSION
the second.

My recommendation is "just let it be"
because "linux-upstream_6.3.0-rc2.orig.tar.gz"
you would generate is not the real 6.3.0-rc2.

If you want to restore what you previously did,

 make deb-pkg KDEB_PKGVERSION=6.3.0-rc2-100

will create such a file name.
