Two points: 

1. In extreme cases, you can always look 
at the code. The formula used by -listcoef- 
to calculate e^b appears to be e^b. 

2. The question is confused by not 
distinguishing between levels here. -listcoef- 
is a user-written command; Stata just works on 
what -listcoef- tells it to.
