Very Incomplete records

I am doing some work based on uspatentcitations.

The patent of interest is 10948472

and the database query returns four records 


10948472, 9189944, applicant, 2

10948472, 10330555, examiner, 20

10948472, 10267729, examiner, 19

10948472, 9599529, examiner, 7

if I go to the PTO site and do a num search

I get so only a small fraction of the actual prior citations are in the data file even within a single patent record.

How wide spread is this issue?
