Default Vitamin A in carrots

So, just out of curiosity, when I look at the nutrition information for carrots, it says 3 oz. is 242% of my Vitamin A, but when I log it, and go look at my nutrition info for the day, it doesn't add up to anywhere near that. Is this a deliberate thing, like coded into the algorithm for how vitamin percentages are calculated based on like, how your body absorbs it or something? Or is it just a bug? I don't know if these things simply are supposed to add linearly or not.

Lowest weight: 154.6 (6/25/2012)
Current weight: 164.4 lbs (10/28/2013)
Total lost: 27.6 lbs
Goal: 132 lbs
