Hi Evan,
valence configuration doesn't really matter after the pseudo potential was generated. I think in this case. It simply means we don't know how this one was made.

From the calculation, I know the total valence electrons is 9, but I am not sure whether the valence configure is 3d74s2 by convention. The valence configuration displayed in the upf file is obviously wrong.
