Perhaps for a couple of frame parameters that was changed recently.
However, the general fact that _some_ frame parameters are returned
without ever consulting the frame's parameter alist -- this fact is
true for as long as I can remember.

Every mode (well, almost every one) has a variable by that same name.
Try "C-h v menu-bar-mode RET".  I'm sure you already knew that.
