Why am I seeing more points been counted than I have defined in my Tags? Is my point count misleading or incorrect? 

The points are counted according to Knowledge Base Article Q2271. However it can be a problem when multiple arrays are defined in an addressing of a tag, thus causing this confusion. Each array that has been declared in your tag addressing will also get counted towards your points.

If you have 100 Tags defined and in that 100 tags you have defined a tag with 5 arrays in the address field, then those 5 arrays will get counted on top of the 100 tags that you already have. Therefore your Static Point Count will be shown as 105. This may seem misleading or confusing but it is simply overlooked, since most of us count the tags and not the arrays in the Tag addressing.
