Even if they are bf baby charts, though, the health visitors et al don't seem to realise that if they're based on average sizes, some babies will be below the average, because that's how averages work.

Alex (now 2 1/2) has been somewhere around the 2nd to 9th percentile all his life and has never had anyone questioning his weight (that I can remember/know of). I think the worry comes when they suddenly start dropping off the curve they were following, rather than from being below average per se.
