The Chimera MRC file writer puts the minimum, maximum and mean value of exactly the grid values that are being written to the MRC file. So for instance if you are writing out a subvolume of a bigger map, the min, max, mean are not the values for the bigger map, they are the values for the subvolume. Likewise if you write a subsampled map where only every other data value is included along each axis, then only those values are included in the min, max, mean.
Here is the Chimera code that writes MRC:
