 From a quick review of the Leica documentation on record 0x71 == 113,
the "Point" record:

This looks like a solution record produced by the receiver: position,
matrix error estimates, all the DOPs, velocity estimate, various other
solution stats, ...

I'm standing by my guess that Leica Geo Office is just plotting up
what in these point records (and maybe using a bit of a few other
records), but not creating RINEX or any equivalent and then processing
raw data from scratch.  If I'm wrong, someone can chime in.
