still don't quite understand. I indexed 20 terms under field name "mesh", and set the boost
accordingly from 20 to 1.(just some arbitrary numbers) But when I checked the index from Luke,
the boosts all appear to be 1. I saw the pervious post said it is because the boost shows
in Luke is the product of index-time boost and lengthnorm. But if it is the case, aren't they
supposed to be different instead of value "1"? I guess I still don't fully understand 'lengthnorm".

I can't explain what you are seeing, but it sounds like your
understanding of what it should be is correct.
I guess you are either misinterpreting Luke's output,  not indexing
the docs correctly, or perhaps luke has a bug.
Did you index the terms with different boosts in separate documents?
There is only one norm per document for a specific indexed field.
