What's your point?  Obviously, if you're using XyWrite, VADR
will be the XyWrite value.  And v.v.  VADR is set in Startup or
DFL, not in a formatting command!

No, they are not placeholders.  These are reliable defaults. 
But you can change them to non-standard directories if you want.

That's OK too.

*Some* -- many! -- Keys have reliable defaults out of the box. 
Others need manual intervention.  You gotta look REG over, and
see what looks right or wrong.  If the Value is derived via
programming (like ""), then it is likely to be fine; but
if the Value is literal, like the Comspec Values or something
like "C:\NBWIN", then you gotta make SURE that's correct!  But
it's foolish to look at NB's settings with XyWrite, or v.v.! 
Think about it.  Xy will report XyWrite defaults, NB will report
NB defaults; and the defaults are established, not by REG, but
by INT or DFL.
