Hi Ronnie,
I would suggest
  1. You could possibly execute a prtconf on solaris and cross verify with the AWR.
  2. Check with the system administrator if virtualization (DSD -- Dynamic System Domains or Containers) is enabled on the server which being the case, the memory could be configured to dynamically move between partitions or containers.

Best Regards
