Interesting; your bash version is quite old. I just checked a Debian 8 system, and that has 4.3.30.

MacOS has been using bash 3.2 for goodness knows how long.  I don't think they've updated their bash version at least since I started using the CLI back in 2009.

That is sad. And it calls itself a “Unix system” ...

Technically the only systems that are "true Unix" (in the literal sense of using original Unix code) are the proprietary versions that no one uses, like AIX, HP-UX, etc.  BSD used to use original Unix code, but they rewrote the whole thing when SCO started litigating against them on the basis of the Unix copyright and AT&T's non-disclosure agreement, which basically stipulated that anyone who wanted to use Unix source code in their OS had to keep it closed-source and not reveal the copyrighted code to anyone.  So until the AT&T Unix copyright either expires or is voluntarily released into the public domain, there will never be a Unix OS that is both open-source and a "true Unix".

That being said, I think this whole argument is splitting hairs.  Linux is just as much a true Unix as BSD, and the fact that it was written from the ground up makes little difference.  It still implements the POSIX interface in accordance with the IEEE standards, so IMO it's Unix.  "Linux is not Unix; it's a clone." is a line usually spouted by Linux novices who are in the Dunning-Kruger phase of their Unix hobby, and I'm pretty sure most of them don't even understand the full litigation history behind Linux and Unix.  I know I certainly didn't understand it when I was saying that shit back in 2010.

As I said in that article, what matters nowadays is Linux-compatibility, not Unix any more.
