syncrepl synchronization cookie

I am a newbie to syncrepl. In my configuration the provider is a OL 2.3.4 with BDB 4.2.52 + four patches. The consumer is a OL 2.2.26 with BDB 4.2.52 + four patches.

The contextCSN attributes on my provider and consumer reflect the following values:
Provider: 20050811075850Z#000001#00#000000
Consumer: 20050807195433Z#000001#00#000000

According to the admin guide:
"The consumer also stores its replica state, which is the provider's contextCSN received as a synchronization cookie, in the contextCSN attribute of the suffix entry. "

This is a bit unclear to me. Shouldn't I receive exactly the provider's contextCSN as a sync cookie ?
I will be helpful if someone please elaborates on this ?
