It can be difficult to compare color values, Illustrator uses 0-255, Acrobat 0-100% (correct me if you know how to change that). 

If Acrobat has Overprint Preview On, it displays RGB as a CMYK conversion.

Ah YES totally forgot about the percentage vs 0-255

So if Acrobat does not allow checking RGB numbers correctly then would the best to check be to bring the pdf back into Illustrator or Photoshop and check the values there?

When I check the numbers in acrobat I make sure the overprint preview is not ticked and use a simulation profile that is Adobe RGB 1998.

If you reopen it in Illustrator, it doesn't read the exported PDF, instead it reopens the original Illustrator document. So you can't use this to check. Expect raster images to shift slightly because lossy JPEG compression is used.

It depends on how you save the PDF, when saved without Illustrator Editing capabilities, it will read the values from the PDF.
