Ranking points for qualifyers of IW

Could anybody explain me the contradiction between data from different sources regarding the points for qualifyers of IW who lost in the 2nd round of MD?
If we look at http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=156965 we see the following:
...
R64: 25 (Seeds: 10)
R128: 10 (WC: 0)
Q: +12
Q24: 7
Q48: 0
Above scheme is from the official ATP Code (http://www.atpworldtour.com/Corporate/%7E/link.aspx?_id=9A6B6FF36EBA473F9F88FF8D6DFB60FB&_z=z)
It means for me that the losers of 2nd round of MD should receive 12+25=37 points. Right?
However, if we look at IW page on ATP site http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/Tournaments/Indian-Wells.aspx#tournamentdatapointsprizemoney (Points&Prize Money) we see

R64 25 11,500
R96 10 7,050
Q 16
Q3 0 0
Q2 8 2,100
Q1 0 1,075
According to this scheme we have 16+25=41 points for above mentioned loser of the 2nd round.
If we take as typical representative of such losers, for example, Rainer Schuettler, and look at his page http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/Players/Top-Players/Rainer-Schuettler.aspx?t=pa&y=2010&m=s&e=0# we see he received 41 points!
Why so?

Thank you for your attention. I've received an answer from SteveG (http://stevegtennis.com):

Re: points for Masters

Hi Jacques,

Yes, this is odd. Perhaps recently, they changed it from 12 points to

16 and did not update the rule book. Sometimes they tweak it along the

way and it causes confusion. I have asked the ATP and am awaiting a

response.

The rule is this:

* 12 points only if the Main Draw is larger than 56

Also this shown 7 points for Q2 losers . Actually, they got 8 points. There seems to be a change in points awarded.

Will it be the same for all ATP 1000 events ?
