Section Global says:
RFC 5751 contains several S/MIME sample messages, prefixed with the text "A sample message would be". These samples aren't actually valid S/MIME messages but merely contain 141 bytes of random garbage. In other words the S/MIME "sample messages" aren't actually sample messages.
