IPMI sdr entity 8 (memory module) only showing 3 records?

I've got two PE R710's -

- A has a single socket and 3 memory bays filled
- B has both sockets and 6 (2x3 DIMM) filled

The output from "ipmitool sdr entity 8" confuses me - according to the
OpenIPMI documentation these are supposed to represent DIMM slots.


Output from A (1 die, 3 DIMMS):
~#: ipmitool sdr entity 8

Temp             | 0Ah | ok  |  8.1 | 27 degrees C
Temp             | 0Bh | ns  |  8.1 | Disabled
Temp             | 0Ch | ucr |  8.1 | 52 degrees C


Output from B (2 dies, 3 dims in both sides, 6 DIMMS total):
~#: ipmitool sdr entity 8

Temp             | 0Ah | ok  |  8.1 | 26 degrees C
Temp             | 0Bh | ok  |  8.1 | 25 degrees C
Temp             | 0Ch | ucr |  8.1 | 51 degrees C


Now, I'm starting to think this output isn't DIMMS, but rather some
hodge podge of related sensors?
Is anyone able to explain what I'm seeing?
