Server Status Variables - Queries variable - formula correct?

We currently monitor several status variables, for example "Queries". This is done once a minute and the result is divided by the number of seconds elapsed between the samples. We have an average of roughly 2000 - 2500 queries per second. But, we also see spikes of as much as 150 K queries per second according to this variable. When we enable the general log we don't see any query bursts matching the spikes from the statistics.

I checked the COM_xxx variables from SHOW GLOBAL STATUS. I summed them up and added the Qcache_hits variable to this result. This is all according to the formula found in the docs:
But, the results aren't matching very well. For a newly started server (dev machine) I can see almost perfect results, but for anything like a stage server instance or production server instance, running for weeks, there are major discrepancies.
Is this formula trustworthy, or is it a remnant from the past that just come along today?

Any comment on where these spikes in the Queries variable might come from are also appreciated.

Best regards
