It is very unlikely that your nameservers are known to the root
nameservers, unless you manage a TLD (top-level domain). So, I
seriously doubt that information.

This is expected. For "thin" registries like ".com", there is no
synchronization of the data between the registrars (that's the purpose
of thin registries).

Again, certainly not with the root.
