    For modularized Bicep, I'd suggest you to take a look at Common Azure Resource Modules Library - probably not much of an use right now if you have implemented everything, but could be of use if you feel like refactoring something. I wouldn't suggest it as an example on how to do custom bicep implementation, but one can certainly take some inspiration from there, if not directly using the modules.

    What I found is that using the Resource Modules (https://github.com/Azure/ResourceModules) repo is the best approach. It simplifies the authoring quite a lot in my opinion. And every module on the repo is bicep. But since the modules are created by Microsoft/the community, not every resource or service has a ready module. I have been using it for the last 6-8 months, and find it covers 90% of my scenarios. And each module is quite well documented, but in some cases you have to study the module to figure out the required inputs.

    The https://github.com/Azure/ResourceModules repo (which I recommend strongly, if you are just starting with template specs/bicep modules) seems to be at least referencing https://github.com/dotnet/Nerdbank.GitVersioning though when I peeked at their pipelines I'm not sure if they are actually utilizing it for version numbers. For me it was a bit too complex approach, but might suit you.
