UT2004 benchmarking: what does the "rand" value mean?

I've been benchmarking UT2004 quite a lot recently in conjunction with
tweaking/overclocking my system. I've noticed that often the "rand"
value (printed on the line along with the fps values) varies.
I ran a set of 50 identical 1-minute benchmarks (without altering any
settings) and came up with this distribution of values:
Different values seem to correspond with the test running for slightly
different durations; at least, with rand the benchmark ends
about a second later than it does with rand, while
rand ends about a half a second earlier. I don't see
rand often enough to notice how long it takes.
Does anybody know what this means?
