What are these?

Ok I know they are resistors, but how do they work? They read 330ohms, but my multimeter reads...
.6ohms for right and left prongs
.3 for center and left
.3 for center right
these are not exact but are close enough.
how can I get the 330ohms it reads?
Thank you,
Ben

Well I did some more digging and turns out they are 3.3 ohm..... Why just why would they label it .33k?!

They aren't and they didn't.

They are clearly labelled 0.33 ohms + 0.33 ohms (two in series), intended for emitter resistors in audio amplifiers.

How did you get from clearly labelled 0.33 to 330?.

Because as JimB noted I thought it was .33(kilo) ohms kinda like a 4.7k ohm. Didn't realize it was tolerance
