Oh, whoops! Indeed that's correct! If you visualize them on UCSC (click the UCSC link on the 3 pages: e.g. http://exac.broadinstitute.org/variant/1-245133629-A-C), you'll notice that they fall into splice variants that affect 3' and 5' UTRs, which are unlikely to be LoF (will not trigger nonsense-mediated decay).

This is a newer version of LOFTEE that hasn't been made into a full release yet, so hasn't been integrated into the ExAC browser yet.

Thank you, Konrad!

I listed the annotation for the three variant-transcript pairs below:
