There lies your answer, no?

Each of the log entry records "this was before, and this is after
the change".  ref@{0} reads from the "after" field of 0-th (from the
end) entry. ref@{1} reads from the "after" field of 1-st (again from
the end) entry.  ref@{N} reads from the "after" field of N-th (again
from the end) entry.

Notice that nowhere in the above sequence we read from "before" field.
