Good point, but to ascertain whether it is a misinterpretation we need 
to know which format the given variable/field has in Stata.

Can you send an example copy of the dta file to: info at epidata.dk

The values 32741 to 32767 are converted to (extended) missing data, above 32768 numbers are converted to negative numbers. Since the range [-32767 - 32768] contains 2^16 Numbers, I assume the export routine handles integer as 16bit Integers.
