I would guess that they're completely internal to source.
And once the code exits - the program is terminated.  So it's gone.

But that makes me think about the possibility of writing those values to a file,
or to some sort of shell environment variable.

Then you could parse a scene, exit without rendering, and do some post-parse
processing with a shell command....
