Is there like no accounting of how much goes in pipe vs how much comes out of pipe? Hmm normally we fill this tank but today it only half filled? Oh well

Most likely they knew about it for a long time and intentionally chose not to stop it. It was either cheaper to let it leak or it saved some C-level's bonus.

They probably also have some acceptable margin for (small but numerous) leaks, and it's probably adjusted as the pipe ages and also started as a compromise between a guess from some engineers and whatever the executives wanted.

Gasoline pipelines in particular have lots of monitoring systems because people will straight up cut holes in them and suck out the tasty gas to sell, sometimes entire tanker trucks worth.
