I have a couple of Fuji kit lenses, Fuji XF 55-200mm and the XF 18-55mm.

Over the years I've managed to loose the two Fuji lens caps and they have been replaced by a couple of Tamron 58mm caps and I noted they were interchangeable between the two lenses.

I lost one of those last weekend and need a replacement, but I've just noticed that, though the one remaining Tamron cap fits both lenses and has 58mm stamped on it, on the lenses themselves they have different sizes stamped on the front.

Is the figure I've highlighted the cap size or something else?

What you have highlighted is the filter size which also corresponds to the lens caps size.  It could be that 58mm and 62mm are just close enough that the 58mm fits but could be a little loose.  Or it could be the way the Tamron caps are sized?  I don't know but that's nice you can use the same size on both lenses.
