Strange audio levels

My deliverable specs require me to output 24 discrete channels of audio even if the tracks are "empty" aside from the tone and two-pop. I have two questions. My sequence settings are set to "Channel Format: Multichannel" and 24 channels.
1. If I create Bars and Tone from "File -- New -->" and choose -20db, the Audio Clip Mixer shows it to be -23. If I choose -17db, I get the -20db that I am looking for. I find this strange and I'm not sure what to trust.
2. Though I have edited in the same -17db tone into all 24 tracks, Tracks 3 and 4 are showing as -14db while all the other tracks show -20db. This is only happening in the small window to the right of the sequence. in the Audio Clip Mixer, it shows all tracks as -20db.
I have attached some screen shots. Hopefully this makes sense to someone because I am thoroughly confused about how to fix it. I have all audio tracks as Mono.
