What does "This is used only for reporting" mean in the API docs?

In the API docs I have seen a lot of fields that contain this phrase, for example:

priceWithModifiersAndItemAndOrderDiscoun int64
Price of item after adding all modifications and subtracting all line item and order level discounts. This is used only for reporting.

As far as I can tell from using the API in sandbox to create/lookup orders and payments, in practice this means "this value will be null".

Under what circumstances are these values populated?

Don't expect or rely on any fields that say that. I am guessing they are used for internal Clover reporting and not meant for third parties.
