Question about elevation and height in little_r format

I'm using some weather stations (FM-12 SYNOP) and a weather tower (FM-35 TEMP) as input in OBSPROC in little_r format. And there is two parameters which I have some doubts.
First, in the header there is an elevation parameter, which is same as topography, above sea level. But I don't know and I haven't found, if the Height in the data is the same, or just the height above the topography (i.e 10 m) or topography plus the height.
