As far as I know there were no features introduced between 10.2.0.1 and 10.2.0.3 (minor patch release).
Also the Oracle docs (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/ server.102/b14237/initparams028.htm#sthref88) show the following for the 'compatible' parameter:
Default value 10.0.0 Range of values 9.2.0 to default release
This suggests to me that the general practice is to specify only 3 significant digits. That would mean that there is no difference between 10.2.0.1 and 10.2.0.3.
