    Why does eye dropper Lab show a different value than the Lightness channel?

      Can someone help me understand how the L in Lab color in the eye dropper tool maps to the actual Lab Lightness channel?  Both are on a scale of 0-100, but they clearly show different values.  Here's a video that show what I mean (note that if I completely desaturate the color, I get the same results, it isn't a color thing).
