The TeX Live Guide—2020, sec. 7.3 Runtime options [1] says

> The default value of hash_extra is 50000.

But this default value is now 600000. It was increased
 - from 50,000 to 200,000 in texlive/r14629 [2], and then
 - from 200,000 to 600,000 in texlive/r28382, in Aug 2012 [3].

Also, I'm not sure if the description
> Only ≈10,000 control sequences can be stored in the main hash table
in the same section is still accurate or need an update too.

PS: It is Marcel Krüger's TeX-SX answer to question _tex.hashtokens
incomplete?_ [4] which leads me to find this typo.
