There's some confusion between UI maps and maps. UI maps are what you view when you press M.

Maps (or sometimes seen in Blizzard's code as continentID) are the physical areas that we run around in. A UI map is a view onto one or more physical maps. It doesn't make sense to say that a creature spawns in a UI map.

The deprecated table is a mapping between the old UI map system and the new UI map system. It won't help much if you're looking for physical map data. There's the function C_Map.GetWorldPosFromMapPos(uiMapID, mapPosition) -> continentID, worldPosition which can help you convert between the two.
