Default vitamin content of seed butter

Does anyone know why fitday lists a serving of sunflower seed butter as fulfilling 0% of the RDA for Vitamin E but a serving of roasted sunflower seeds as fulfilling 42%. The same goes for almonds vs. almond butter. Does the buttering process destroy Vitamin E, or is this just a mistake?

I don't see sunflower butter on the list at all. I could put it on as a custom food, but my sunflower butter jar shows no vitamin E on the jar label! Perhaps as Noahfor mentioned it may be destroyed in the processing. However, almond butter has a fitday listing and it does show a good vitamin E level. and the label on the almond butter agrees that the E is there. I am finding Vitamin E the hardest nutrient to reach 100%RDA on but I am able to achieve it by using wheat germ, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
