Bug confirmed. Workaround is to manually add it after archiving the binary but before signing it for distribution to App Store (e.g.):
/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Add :ApplicationProperties:CFBundleVersion string '220.127.116.11'" \
~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Archives/2016-09-21/MyProject.iOS\ 9-21-16\ 10.58\ AM.xcarchive/Info.plist
If I try with a brand new iOS project.
In the project options > iOS IPA Options > Build iTunes Package Archive (IPA).
Then in the build folder, unzip the .ipa file, open Payload and inspect the built app, I **do** have the CFBundleVersion and CFBundleShortVersionString from the main app's Info.plist file.
Therefore I cannot confirm this bug.
I'm using Xamarin Studio Version 6.2 (build 586) and Xamarin.iOS Version: 10.0.1.8
Could you please re-try with the latest versions of the product (stable) as well as give us a test case if you still cannot solve the issue. That might help us reproduce or at least get closer to your environment and understand what's wrong.
Further steps to reproduce:
(Note - I have updated to current Stable)
1) Create new SingleView iOS Project
2) In the Info.plist, change Bundle version to 1234567
3) Change to Release/Device configuration
4) In project settings, set signing to a cert that works
5) Select Build->Archive for Publishing
6) In the Archives window, observe that "Code" is not set
Expect - Code to be set to 1234567
Actual - Blank Code
7) Right click the archive fro the Archives window, and Reveal in Finder
8) From finder, right click the .xcarchive and Show Package Contents.
Expect - CFBundleVersion to be included with a value of 1234567
Actual - No CFBundleVersion
Ah thanks for the complete test case, I did not check the publishing workflow since you talked about IPA.
Now I can confirm the issue.
Actually this bug has already been fixed by Jeff in https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/commit/f9e2e187940e1815e648e65d4d6fb2ab50d3c9a9
It's also a duplicate of https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=44348
If you don't want to wait for the fix to hit stable, you can check out our xamarin-macios wiki here: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/wiki
There are links to our continuous builds, what you want is in master.

If this was merged into master on Sept 16th, and latest Xamarin.iOS was built on Sept 25th why isn't this fixed in latest stable? (XS 6.1.1. build 17, Xamarin.iOS 10.2.0.4) Is a stable build not a snapshot of the current master branch?
Just updated to XS 6.1.2 (build 44) and Xamarin.iOS 10.2.1.5 (what are the chances that the day I make a comment and then launch XS is the day there is an update!), but appears to still be broken when I did a full rebuild and archive of our project.
Though the comment over here, https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=44348#c7, seems to imply that it is fixed in XS 18.104.22.1689 Xamarin.iOS 10.1.0.82. Which is odd, is a newer XS, and old Xamarin.iOS than my current and it still does not appear for me.
Updating to alpha channel (XS 6.2, Xamarin.iOS 10.4.0.4), and then my archive build code worked.
