    ... and should I be seeing them in the environment?

    They're set by @LINES. (The help file calls these "command variables", though @LINES isn't a command. They don't appear in the list of command variables -- I'd guess they were overlooked for that very reason.)

    Yeah but they're in the environment. I'd expect them to be internal like the other "Command Variables".

    And (whatever) I don't think _LINES_MAXLOC is correct; see below.
    Code:
    v:\ipreg\country> echo %@lines[ipcountry.txt] & set _*
    82165
    _LINES_MAXLEN=20
    _LINES_MAXLOC=9223372034707292160
