invisible, unawarded upvote

My answer got 10 upvotes, and according to my user page, I received 10 reputation points for the first 9 upvotes, and 6 reputation points for the 10th upvote. Either the display is wrong, or the explanation on the FAQ list is wrong.

What's going on? Documentation error, or software error? Or did I miss something?
