It's not strange numbering, and it was clearly documented in the release

The answer to your direct question is yes, the patch will be
against, since that is the previous release. It will contain all
changes in the 1.6.1 branch since was released, which will
include everything that was in the release candidates, the
security fix that went into, and any further bug fixes committed
since was released.
