It isn't even hiding the truth, since it is showing you the "decoded"
integer value, not its encoding bits.  Just as it does for most other
fields.  It is just that if you're expecting to to see the encoding,
then because the integer is shown in hex, you might be misled that
it is the encoding you're seeing.
