dcfldd Records In/Out vs. Written

Can anyone explain what the difference is between Records In/Out and
Records Written in dcfldd?
If I'm doing a dcfldd with bs=512 on a hard drive with X number of
sectors, the Records In/Out is X - the same number of sectors the hard
drive has. However, the number of records *written* is always less than
the total in/out and what the hard drive has. Does this mean that it's
not copying sectors near the end of the drive, or is the Records Written
number not really relevant?
