I figured the same. Well, at least this is done with all manufactures , so the differences though not calibrated are somewhat close.
ALL manufactures should have to post lumens for various scenarios.
Car manufactures do this with gas mileage figures. They post mileage for a car optimized for perfect conditions. Flat roads, lowest highway speed, perfect road surface, flat road, temperature, tires
stripped down car etc.etc,etc. Then when you drive the thing best you will ever get real world is 60% of the published.
