RTC built-in attributes per repository or per project area?

Using the RTC Api I came across this method:
workItemClient.findBuiltInAttributes(fProjectArea, monitor);

This gives me the impression that there can be different method return values (=built-in attributes) for lets say two 
project areas on the same repository. Even the implementation of the method is fetching some (ached) information related to the given project area.
I always thought that the built-in attributes are defined by the installation itself meaning the repository (as already confirmed by this thread
So is this just a flaw in the API that confuses me or am I missing something?

The internal attributes are not in the process configuration. Only the custom attributes are.

So they are defined for the application. However, attributes only live in a project area and therefore the context of the project area is needed to access any attributes, I guess. This is in any case the only API access I have found to find the built in attributes.
