[texhax] Question about \skip\footins

I'm using the book class with no size option (therefore, 10pt with
12pt baseline skip) and a sty file where I have defined footnotes as
therefore, no rule between main text and footnotes; and
therefore I would expect \skip\footins = 12pt, plus 6pt minus 6pt (the
baselineskip of main text is *indeed* 12pt); but if I put anywhere in
footins = \the\skip\footins
footins = 10.0pt plus 5.0pt minus 5.0pt
Can someone explain to me why this is so?
Thank you in advance.
