The problem is that series can have holes. For example, I might have books 1, 13, and 27 of some series that has 30 books available. The total number of books is 3, the highest series is 27, and the theoretical highest is 30. Which of these numbers do you want?

Calibre computes the first two numbers on demand, the total when it counts members of a series for the tag browser, and the highest when a new book is added to the series. To my knowledge, neither number is stored in an OPF. The third number is not kept. One reason is that it changes as authors add to the series, something that does not happen with an album.
