     Why would anyone think that the ORER is an accounting document? I am sure the accounting people had their own records (certainly on the SP they were entirely separate, interesting in their own right, but separate). The Mechanical Department responsible for the ORER submission need not follow accounting rules, and vice versa.
      BTW, on the SP at least, they were still updating valuation records as late as 1970.
