Discrepancies between number of pips gained and number of $ made on backtest

I've recently downloaded the birt's 99% tick data for back testing and I've noticed a consistent discrepancy between the number of pips gained and the number of dollars made.

All trades are at 0.01 lots so 97.23 pips / $9.52 is incorrect, does the backtest factor in commissions and and carry fees?

It does factor in comission and swaps yes.
