In a sense, yes, but only because the revision level of the whole repository is

The reason you are seeing mixed revisions is because the svn is reporting the
last revision that was changed.

To better explain this:

$ svnadmin create /svn/repos
$ svn checkout file:///svn/repos ~/wc
Checked out revision 0.

-- make a default directory tree for two projects and commit:

$ svn commit -m "default tree"
Adding proj1
Adding proj1/branches
Adding proj1/tags
Adding proj1/trunk
Adding proj1/trunk/bin
Adding proj1/trunk/doc
Adding proj1/trunk/src
Adding proj2
Adding proj2/branches
Adding proj2/tags
Adding proj2/trunk
Adding proj2/trunk/bin
Adding proj2/trunk/doc
Adding proj2/trunk/src

Committed revision 1.

$ cd proj1/trunk/src
$ echo line1 > file1.c
$ svn add file1.c
A file1.c

$ svn commit -m "adding first file for proj1"
Adding src/file1.c
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 2.

$ cd ../doc
$ echo line1 > file1.txt
$ svn add file1.txt
A file1.txt

$ svn commit -m "adding second file for proj1"
Adding doc/file1.txt
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 3.

$ cd ~/wc/proj2/trunk/src
$ echo line1 > file1.pl
$ svn add file1.pl
A file1.pl

$ svn commit -m "adding first file for proj2"
Adding src/file1.pl
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 4.

-- Now we can see how the revisions actually look:

$ svn info ~/wc/proj1/trunk/src/file1.c | grep Rev
Revision: 2
Last Changed Rev: 2

$ svn info ~/wc/proj1/trunk/doc/file1.txt | grep Rev
Revision: 3
Last Changed Rev: 3

$ svn info ~/wc/proj2/trunk/src/file1.pl | grep Rev
Revision: 4
Last Changed Rev: 4

-- The reason the revisions are all different is because we made all of our
commits to a single file and did not update the whole working copy:

$ cd ~/wc
$ svn update
At revision 4.

$ svn info ~/wc/proj1/trunk/src/file1.c | grep Rev
Revision: 4
Last Changed Rev: 2

$ svn info ~/wc/proj1/trunk/doc/file1.txt | grep Rev
Revision: 4
Last Changed Rev: 3

$ svn info ~/wc/proj2/trunk/src/file1.pl | grep Rev
Revision: 4
Last Changed Rev: 4

-- Furthermore, let's baseline proj1 and call it Release 1:

$ svn copy -m "Release 1" file:///svn/repos/proj1/trunk \

Committed revision 5.

$ svn update
A proj1/tags/proj1_Release_1
A proj1/tags/proj1_Release_1/doc
A proj1/tags/proj1_Release_1/doc/file1.txt
A proj1/tags/proj1_Release_1/src
A proj1/tags/proj1_Release_1/src/file1.c
A proj1/tags/proj1_Release_1/bin
Updated to revision 5.

$ tree proj1
|-- branches
|-- tags
| `-- proj1_Release_1
| |-- bin
| |-- doc
| | `-- file1.txt
| `-- src
| `-- file1.c
`-- trunk
     |-- bin
     |-- doc
     | `-- file1.txt
     `-- src
         `-- file1.c

10 directories, 4 files

$ svn log -v -r 5
r5 | mmoore | 2005-06-16 18:17:58 -0800 (Thu, 16 Jun 2005) | 1 line
Changed paths:
    A /proj1/tags/proj1_Release_1 (from /proj1/trunk:4)

Release 1

   So, proj1_Release_1 revision 5 is just a copy of proj1/trunk at revision 4.
In other words you define the releases however you want, but the revisions keep
incrementing for the whole repository with every commit. I hope this helps!
