I think the question is already clear from the subject? Does it make sense, or is there any valid reason one should update from say 14.1.6 to 14.1.8 or 14.1.10
because the last two releases only mention Mac in the change log?
I think it's safe for Linux users to ignore these updates. It happens fairly rarely, and we usually try to release with at least some change for both platforms. Sometimes, however, there are critical bugs which need fixing on one platform which we have to release when there's nothing in the release branch for the other platform.
We've done releases that were only for one platform or the other in the past, but that led to people asking why one platform or the other was a step ahead. So there was confusion either way, and now my practice is to keep the numbers in sync and release for both.
If there's nothing in the Linux changelog, you can safely skip the release.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
