They are not unalterable
Unalterable in that you can't change the initial default settings. For example, it will always correct what it perceives as under exposure or over exposure.

Strange one this, but as the RAW file is unprocessed in any way i.e. RAW (jpeg preview exempted), the jpeg file must be being processed either in camera or the viewing softwares giving it a tweak.

I found this on the web.

post processing - How does Picasa process RAW photos? - Photography Stack Exchange

It is pretty self explanatory. It scales the exposure to make a small percentage white (255 grey scale)

And here I was thinking "Wow! The RAW shots look good. I'm getting a handle on this."
Only to find out Picaso is fixing things for me. Oh well
