I came across some mildly curious behaviour today.

  • I reached the reputation cap on SO

  • I started a 450 bounty

  • The bounty amount was reduced from the overall reputation

  • I have had two accepted answers since. Those +30 have not been counted towards my visible reputation score.

  • They are, however, visible in the reputation audit. My reputation audit score seems to be taking the acceptances into account.

This is not a support request. There is no problem. Just thought I'd report it in case it's an edge case with deeper consequences (which I doubt), and slightly curious whether this is expected behaviour.
