Beam Design

In code parameters for required reinforcement for beams, one has the option to calculate the required reinforcement taking axial forces into consideration.  This gives a set of required reinforcement in the beam (sometimes with some outliers in the results ??- circled red in attachment).  when one compares the results, the calculated reinforcement is higher than when calculated without N (see second attachment). However in the beam design module, this axial force is not taken into account (see excerpt from help file as well as from calculation note (also attached) .  Is it possible then that the beam design module is under-reinforcing the beams?
