The comment for the op-code says:

  #define CCL_LookupIntConstTbl 0x13 /* Lookup multibyte character by
                                        integer key.  Afterwards R7 set
                                        to 1 if lookup succeeded.
                                        1:ExtendedCOMMNDRrrRRRXXXXXXXX
                                        2:ARGUMENT(Hash table ID) */

so there appears to be no significance to r7's value?

Why did you think this code was wrong?  And why is this important in
the context of your playing with hash tables?

I don't see ccl-compile-lookup-integer used anywhere, FWIW.
I've CC'ed Handa-san, who might have some comments about this.
