Of course there is always the chance that they are encrypted or the number you see is not the actual number in RAM.
For example if you search for your lives in Contra III: Alien Wars, you have to search for the number on your screen + 1. If I see 7 on my screen I have to search for 8.

Additionally, you can always be sure whether or not the number is stored in RAM the same as it appears on the screen by searching the lowest number of bits possible to store the number.
Use an Expression Search in MHS for this.
If the maximum value is 93, you need 7 bits to store the number. The Expression Search would be:
(?? & 0x7F) == 93
