Interesting.

maybe Weight is good or has errors... total is w/in the ballpark.
Why? Most scales have problems accurately reading the load at edge of platform.

If you can, Try doing one axle at a time that centers the load on 2 scales and see if weight changes.
(total weight is just sum of scales.)

You can try contact scale maker... Avery Weigh-Tronix (Avery/ITW is current owners of Weigh-Tronix)
