The only thing that can go back in time and renumber old revisions
(that I'm aware of) is if you manually remove revisions from the
repository. This is a non-trivial, rather difficult maneuver, and
it's strongly discouraged that one even do it.

What other commands do you think you have found that can renumber revisions?
