Yes, Munin and other tools collect the values over time to create the
graph.  It's not like "top" saves historical system load data either,
yet the collector is able to present you with a graph.

It's not, because the tool would have a much harder time trolling the
logs.  CSV does not really make it much easier -- the DBA is still
tasked with importing the thing after the current file is complete; and
you don't have an up-to-date picture either.
