They have the endianess of the machine where you're dumping them.
luaU_dump stores a byte that indicates the machine's endianess along
with the bytecodes, so luaU_undump can adjust, if the endianess of the
machine where you are reading the bytecodes is different. Check
ldump.c and lundump.c if you are curious.
