I always thought it meant raw unless it specifically stated cooked, but now I'm wondering the same thing. I looked up the listing for 1 oz
Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat) & there are 3 different versions provided by the USDA.
1 oz Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat)
cals 38 fat 1.4g protein 5.99g
1 oz Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat, Patty, Cooked, Broiled)
cals 48 fat 1.86g protein 7.45g
1 oz Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat, Patty, Cooked, Pan-Broiled)
cals 46 fat 1.68g protein 7.31g
I don't see how if the first one is for raw that everything would go up when cooking. It should go down because of loosing fat & juices during cooking. Maybe the first listing is if all the juices are drained, like grilling, and the other 2 are higher because broiled would be cooked in it's own juices? So IMO it's after cooking.
