I would use it to auto-generating interface static libraries if a DLL is pointed in $LINKLIB.

Sorry for my ignorance, but I cannot understand how to compare these values.
I got now in my test the entries of an exported procedure and of an exported variable
(as I could see in asm sources, the first is located in .text, the second in .bss).
Also I got the virtual addresses of .text and .bss.
All 4 values are correct (I checked them also with NT Quick View) but I don't understand relationships:

Procedure entry point in export table: 5F38H,
Variable entry point in export table: 1040H,
.text section virtual address: 1000H,
.bss section virtual address: 40F3H.

Also when I tried to view other (e.g. NT system) dlls, many functions have entries outside of .text virtual addresses.

Please, if possible, explain me, how to recalculate these values to make comparing correct.
