[BioC] biomaRt difference from biomart.org?

I have tried to fetch 1000bp upstream sequences for a number of rat
genes via biomart. When using the webbased biomart this seems to work
alright, but when automating the process I ran into a problem: for some
genes, "Sequence unavailable" is returned.
Exemplifiyng for a single gene that has this problem:
1 Sequence unavailable ENSRNOG00000005152
On the web, I select ("Attributes->Sequences->Flank(gene), upstream
1000bp, and some associated gene data (Ensembl Gene id, assoc. gene name).
Am I unknowingly querying for different things? Or is the biomaRt
interface connected to a different mart?
