Crocdog, that is a question, which only the person who wrote the guide, can answer. Habitually, when measuring any kind of bolt, only the length of the thread part is measured, not the bolt head. Hope this helps, good luck.

Crocdog, what I said is, that only the person who wrote the guide, can answer it for sure. We do not know how the person measured it. It is not common to measure the bolt head in the length of the screw.

Yes - see: fastener measuring the # is the driver size. That number, such as "Phillips #00" or "Torx T5" are not characterized by a linear dimension, but are for the most part arbitrary designations in the same sense as a "Size 8" shoe or dress.
