This seems to work a little different than I though as I just discovered with
How does this work? .rel.got only contains R_386_GLOB_DATA relocations and
.rel.plt contains only R_386_JUMP_SLOT relocations. But the .plt section is
marked readonly... So the entries of .rel.got and .rel.plt both end up
modifiying .got? The numbers seem to add up...

To answer my own question, the R_386_GLOB_DATA relocations (a total of 7160)
seem to account for the remaining 28Kb.
