obviously, if it's described in the help-patch it has to behave like
that (that is why i don't describe features in the help-patches ;-))

would be ok (for everybody, not just you) if the empty bang had to be
triggered separately (just like in [textfile])?

e.g. [urn 3]
would output 3 random numbers; when banged a 4th time, it would (only)
output a bang at the right-hand side; when banging a 5th time it would
output a random number again.

this is somewhat weird, as banging the object 40 times will only give
you 30 random numbers (but for those who don't care about the wraparound
but really want 40 numbers instead, they could just feedback the 2nd
outlet to the left inlet)

it would be interesting to know whether there are objections from other
users of this object.
