  *   >FIPS ciphers are a subset of the ciphers that OpenSSL supports.

  *   Is this true of both OpenSSL 2.0 FIPS version and OpenSSL 3.0 FIPS version. (I suppose yes). But still your confirmation will be helpful.

Yes it is true for both.

  *   Also, current version is considered outdated, even before new version is ready.

This is true.  But you got it for free.
