Incorrect Utilization

I have a beam on two supports (pinned and rolled) with a line load and a bending moment around a support. The My line is correct, the utilization of beam view is also correct, however the utilization of the component “utilization of elements” is smaller than that of beam view. that’s incorrect. How is this possible, it is not due to the buckling length because it is already at 0.

Dear @b.hunen,
by default the ‘Utilization’-component calculates the beam utilization at three positions (start, mid, end) per element. In order to get the expected result increase the number of samples along the beam:
