What is there to find odd about the weight limit? They can hold a fair amount of weight, not that I would know......

And if it's anything like the carlon, it's technically not rated for ceiling fixtures.

If they have the plastic ears, they are not rated for fixture support, only for j-boxes and smoke detectors. If it has the metal strap on the back, it's fixture rated.
