Default Unequal Support reactions for symmetrical beam load

I have a steel lintel which supports only symmetrical permanent loads.
The loading pattern comprises of self weight, a full UDL and two partial varying intensity loads.
The Eurobeam analysis gives equal unfactored support reactions as expected, but the 6.10a support reactions are unequal. The R1 factored reaction seems correct at 1.35 x the unfactored reaction, but R2 is giving a result which is 1.025 x the unfactored reaction.

The padstone calculation is using this lower reaction to size the padstone.

Apologies, I missed this one. What are the loads?
