Somewhat OT: About modules coresize

I know that is somehat OT, but I was looking for trying to discover what
does mean the size column of lsmod. Some people says is memory used by the
module, but if I run strace lsmod I found that it takes a look to coresize
files at /sys and read
/usr/share/doc/kernel-doc-3.9.2/Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-module and
it says "Module size in bytes" but if I see the filesize using ls don't

So what does really mean coresize?
