It's not broken at all. The type of the return value is just a bit messy
because we mix statistics from the device with statistics from the
nodes. query-nodes=true can't return device statistics, but the
respective fields aren't optional in the schema either, so it just puts
0 there. This is ugly, but if you know which information you can use, it
works fine, so cleaning it up was never considered to have a good
justification for breaking compatibility.

In any case, wr_highest_offset is part of the node statistics and it
contains the correct value for each node.
