Size displayed in Bitbucket for binary files tracked with LFS


I have binary files tracked with LFS in a Bitbucket repository and the size displayed does not match with the real file size:



However, if I clone the repository without downloading the LFS binaries using GIT_LFS_SKIP_SMUDGE=1, the LFS pointer size matches with the size displayed in Bitbucket:


Is there any documentation that explains what is exactly the file size displayed in Bitbucket? Real file size or LFS pointer size? Is there any way to show the real file size instead?
