Statutory is just a guidelines indicates the minimum amount/percentage that an employer and employee is supposed to contribute as per country's or location's government rules/law that fetches this value from the Statutory Minimum Lookup object Statutory Minimum Lookup Object

The max and min amounts are maintained in statutory object, so that the rule's value should be between the min and max range.

statutory provides guidelines on what values are allowed, but it does not say what should be the exact. Value and amount is still vary on Employee and employer contribution rules or maintained on Benefit configuration.
