The export block provides text that is to be used "as is" by the html backend. So, "call_numbers()" is treated as html.
You need to construct the export block programmatically. Maybe something like
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :results html :exports results :var num=numbers()
(format "the result is %d" num )
Thanks for that Chuck. It would seem a lot cleaner if there was a hook or something one could run that would just expand macros in export blocks before exporting them.
