Default Control cable torque?

According to my chart, the proper torque value for the nuts that secure the mixture/throttle/prop control cables should be torqued in the 500 in-lb range. That value is understandable for a solid bolt/nut, but for a hollow tube? This seems high. I am curious if there is a different torque method for these nuts, or if this is correct. I am concerned about damaging the cables torquing to this value.

I was unable to find anything with a search, so I tend to think I'm missing something obvious. Any hints?
