Yes (to some degree), yes (when explained in proper context), and I would just call these average good ranges for overall weight for some species. I would not say it says anything about hydration or anything else other than overall weight of some animals as a "rule of thumb" based on limited, but well intended, data.
I would not use it, personally, and would not want a person to live and die by it, but it can provide a sense of "goodness" for the heft of an average animal when they do not have a large enough history to have formed much perspective. For such people, I think it may help guide them.
