There us more than one reason to seal a record. Relatives say it was to change his mother's maiden name, from Pope, to step father's name. President's mother was still under 18 when he was born and could still be adopted, etc. Yes this does need to be verified and all his realtives have died that are parties to the certificate and historians might like to check out his official connections to the Royal Romanovs of Russia.

He may be Fundraiser in Chief, but is Obama LEGALLY Commander in Chief? Obama has not released his original LONG FORM birth certificate, right. Hawaii law at the time allowed for foreign-born children to be registered in Honolulu which would create a record for the "Certificate of Live Birth" (different document) that has been touted as the shibboleth that was debunked ages ago.
