NCEI does assign DOIs to major dataset versions. See the following example
dataset landing pages below. Each version is considered a new collection
and receives a new collection metadata record and DOI.

NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of AVHRR Surface Reflectance, Version 4
(Version Superseded)
NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of AVHRR Surface Reflectance, Version 5
