You'll get the same again if you type: di "`r(varlist)'".

The logic behind what you saw is that

di `r(varlist)'

is like typing

di make price mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight length turn displacement
gear_ratio foreign

Which means "display the content of the first observation of each of
these variables".

Hope this helps,
Maarten
