How Google does see ID/Numbers in URLs:
Google recommends user friendly links and hence, anything which is contrary to this will not fulfill Google recommendations. The concept of clean permalinks is based on user experience.
URL appears in search results and gives an impression of what the page is about. Any thing that helps users understand the site well, it is highly recommended by Google.
In SEO, URL structure comes into On-Site SEO, which is most important. On-site SEO deals with optimizing website with respect to Google’s requirements, and clean URL is the primary requirement.
