Clay golem bug?

I was read somewere that clay golem can reach amaizing number of hit points on 20 lvl . Is this true? If yes can someone give me additional info?

Here you go, taken straight from the Encyclopedia Necromantica.

Clay golem gets a crazy life bonus.

With a skill level of 21/21 for all golems and mastery (with skill adders not placed points):

Golem life
Clay-11,550
Blood-3,312
Iron-5,146
Fire-5,318

I find this strange but it's true. It's gets further ridiculous at higher levels. Check out these numbers.

(Skill points 40/40/40/40, Clay, golem mastery, Blood, Fire):

Golem's life
Clay-40,287 [Ed's note: !!]
Blood-5,740
Iron-9,800
Fire-10,130

The strange part about clay is that his incredible life is not dependent upon synergies. It's just his natural bonus.
This 'little' benefit is also considered to be bugged at this time but no official word from Blizzard has been heard from my knowledge.

A small note about fire golem: at skill level 40 his fire damage breaks 1000 and his holy fire does over 100. Skill level 20 is about half that. With lower resist in play a high level Firegolem can actually down an enemy or two down on his own.

10x Mad Mantis,
Can you tell me - can I have good clay golem without more than 20 point in Clay Golem/Golem Mastery
For example what will be happen in this case:
Skill points 10/10, Clay, golem mastery?
or this
Skill points 1/19, Clay, golem mastery?
or this
Skill points 19/1, Clay, golem mastery?

I don't think it's a bug, clay golem's base life increases with higher levels and that in turn is multiplied by golem mastery.
