The new certificate of birth shall show the true or probable
foreign country of birth, and that the certificate is not evidence of United States citizenship for the child

A foreign certificate simply agrees the person was indeed born some where at some time.

Good point-even the COLB means nothing without the long form.
The COLB doesn't prove you are a citizen.
