So DNDBeyond is calculating this character's Passive Investigation as 37, and I can't figure out how/why...

The character is a Pallid Elf Rogue (Scout) 12/ Ranger (Hunter) 5 with the observant feat and stats as indicated in the image below...

Now by my math their passive investigation should be 10+6+6+5 for a total of 27, but its reporting as 37 (which would require a nat 20 to roll); additionally, shouldn't passive perception and investigation both be the same score here? (passive insight is reporting accurately, it would seem?)

Is it doing something hanky with reliable talent perhaps? O_o

Edit: The character has no magic items, or any other non-weapon equipment, and no feats other than Observant and Elven Accuracy.

I'd included Observant in the original math: 10 - base +6 - Proficiency +6 - Expertise +5 - Observant

Which totals 27 -- even adding the +5 for Incisive Sense that brings us to 32, so I'm not sure where the 37 comes from... to make things more complex, Insight should also be 32, but only lists at 27, and Perception should only be 27, but is showing as 32.
