In that case, I beg to differ. They are in the elisp reference manual to 
illustrate the values of functions or variables. When you read the manual in 
the Emacs whose version corresponds to the manual (as it is supposed to be the 
case) and you evaluate them, there are no reasons why they would not reflect 
the actual numbers of the Emacs version.
