See for example CVE-2019-3699 
(https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-3699). This is about a 
vulnerability of privoxy when it runs on OpenSuse. This CVE is currently 
detected for the privoxy package on http://autobuild.buildroot.net/stats/

I have extracted the NVD entry from the NVD 2019 json file for 
convenience: http://paste.awesom.eu/ibNy . The matching CPEs are 
logically declared as follows:

     privoxy:privoxy <3.0.28-lp151.1.1,

They seem to use this to indicate if a particular distribution/OS is 
vulnerable to the CVE.
