The numbers are overall counts for that view, after the contents of that
policy zone have been loaded. Cumulatively, they should match the number
of records in your policy zones (named starts with empty RPZ state).

If these numbers (for the view) don't match up, can you try reproducing
this with 9.10.3-rc1 and let us know what you get? There have been some
bugfixes since 9.10.2.

How many policy zones do you have? If you can, please send us your named
configuration and the expected number of RRs that you intend to see.
