No, it's because the Strong's numbers in NASB are keyed to their own
lexicons, the NAS Heb/Grk lexicons, which have multiple entries at 5179,
as 5179a and 5179b.  It's not a reference to a verse segment.

τυπικῶς \tupikōs\
Etymology: from G5179b
Definition: typically
Usage: example(1).

τύπος \tupos\
Etymology: from G5180
Definition: the mark (of a blow), an impression, stamp (made by a die)
Usage: example(3), examples(2), form(2), images(1), imprint(1),
model(1), pattern(3), type(1).

A literal search for 5179a or 5179b succeeds.

Unfortunately there's no way for Joe Average to know that an a/b/c
suffix is needed or useful.  (There is one entry, 3103, with 3 [a/b/c]
entries. There are 182 a/b pairs.)
