I-140 is filed with CIS, not sure if there's actually a "callback" into DOL from CIS to update the status.
I'm sure that there's certain percentage 'x' that's really expired, like there's no corresponding I-140 filed for a given certified_expired PERM. But, I'll not count on these agencies to update each other systems automatically.
Also, 37.5 K is a huge number to NOT file 140, after going through laborious PERM.
So, as always, this data throws more questions than answers
