They do.  The bottom line is that keywords are expanded to their current
values by the checkout/update process that is also part of the checkin
process and some other processes (like diff).  Annotate, on the other
hand, annotates the RCS file as-is, without any further processing. 
Feel free to submit patches if you would like it to behave differently.
