No, but we know they're there, and that because they're sealed, that we don't have them. Therefore it's automatically part of the redaction question. It implies to me that some day we *will* have them, which of course will mean that our current BoM is not the same as what will some day be our BoM. I think this happened in ancient times all the time, as per I Nephi 13 -- the identity of what exactly was on the brass plates is never made clear except to say that it apparently contained more than what we now have from the OT.
