AFAICT they are mixing freq scaling and throttling.
See /proc/acpi/processor/CPU[01]/throttling, I have:

state count:             8
active state:            T0
   *T0:                  00%
    T1:                  12%
    T2:                  25%
    T3:                  37%
    T4:                  50%
    T5:                  62%
    T6:                  75%
    T7:                  87%

and the available frequency steps here are 1.83 GHz, 1.33 GHz, 1000 MHz
This is a Core2 Duo T5600.

so eg. at 1GHz I can throttle at 880, 750, 630, 500, 380, 250 and
130 MHz.
