OutMulticastPkts (under the if-MIB) does not count multicasts.
SNMP queries of the ifOutMulticastPkts MIB retrieve ifOutBroadcastPkts data instead.
Port interface output multicast statistics are actually broadcast statistics.

For the 7100-Series, upgrade to firmware or higher.
Release notes state, in the 'MIB Problems Corrected in' section:
ifMIB: ifOutMulticastPkts displays ifOutBroadcastPkts counter.

For the S-Series, upgrade to firmware or higher.

For the K-Series, upgrade to firmware or higher.
