fseek(...,SEEK_CUR) calls _fflush_r(ptr, fp) in read only mode

In ftello.c, it intentionally skipped fflush for read mode:

/* Find offset of underlying I/O object, then adjust for buffered     bytes.  Flush a write stream, since the offset may be altered if     the stream is appending.  Do not flush a read stream, since we     must not lose the ungetc buffer.  */  if (fp->_flags & __SWR)    _fflush_r (ptr, fp);
But in fseeko.c, when fseek(..., SEEK_CUR) requires to get the current position first. But it calls _fflush_r(ptr, fp) in read mode, which screwed up the current position after fflush. 

For my job, if I skip _fflush_r for read only mode in fseek(..., SEEK_CUR), the job runs OK. 
Considering fseek(..., SEEK_CUR) is a basic call, could my understanding be wrong?
