Default Entering and making sense of Vitamin's and Minerals

When creating a custom food, on the web, it would seem that I could just enter the % RDA off the food label... but the values I see when I add the food to my daily log don't make sense to me.

Example - I created a custom food with 100% RDA for all vitamin's and minerals...

When I add only this custom food item to my daily food log (on the web) and look at the nutrition tab, I see
- Vitamin D as 10.0 mcg which is 100% RDA.
- Vitamin E is 20.1 mcg, 15.0 mcg is the RDA, so 134%

various values seem to be direct interpretations of 100% being 10.0 mcg, but many values do not... this does not make sense.
