What is a point to have percentage in min/max-widths?

Lets say we have min-width:25% then:

1) If width is 'auto' then the constrain will not work.

2) If width has percentage value then the constrain will not work.

3) Only if width has fixed value,  lets say 100px, we are getting result 
which is exacly min-width: 100px; width:25%

To be short percentage in min/max-widths is a mathematical nonsense. 
IMHO, of course.
