I see you are referring to the birth indexes of Babiak parish covering 1804 - 1828. Johann Tonn is shown in year 1811.
I have always called this 'An index to nothing'. Further into the film there are other indexes from 1811 forward.
About 12 years ago I made some detailed notes indicating what was in each 0-101 to 0-110 section on Film 0810111.
""0-103 - Births and Marriages for 1804 to 1828, book #3 - Index to Nothing. Birth list does show villages beside the names - probably birth place. Marriage Index gives year and village.
0-104 - Births 1811/1812, book #4. contains only a few detailed birth entries from Nov. 1811 to May 1812. Written in Polish.""
Where the original records are is a big mystery.
In the 1811-1812 section there are only 18 names listed under births. There should be about 200 names in the years 1811-1812.
In the 1812-1813 section there are more names and detailed entries, but still many missing.
I am sure I found my Mueller sisters birth years and places which fits the information on their marriage and death records.
SO, basically something is better than nothing.

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Request on birth record
I'm researching Johan Tonn, thought to be born about 1810 in Bycz. LDS film
810811 (volume 3/O-103 for 1811) shows his name as Jan Tonn (one N with a
mark above it), born in Bycz. The next columns show a 4 and an 89 but no
record is shown matching either one. Are the actual birth records missing?
It seems like this film only shows the indexes, and about 12-15 actual
records before going to the next index. If anyone can direct me further, I
would appreciate it!
