Summon companion % weapon damage

I'm not sure what is going on here but I have seen this spell read that my companion will do anywhere from 20% to 57% weapon damage. Is this just a tooltip glitch or is there some other factor that effects the scaling of abilities?

This is the only ability I've noticed this on so far.

I think it's a tooltip scaling issue, I've noticed my tooltips changing seemingly at random in other places as well. Thankfully the actual damage has been consistent with what it should be regardless of the odd tooltip.

Tooltip scaling definitely happens. I noted the higher level I get, the more the on death explosion hits for from the grenadier passive.

I'm pretty sure it's a bug. Companion damage doesn't scale with their primary skill. I use the templar for his active skills, mostly stun and his heals, but his damage is negligible in hell, even if I stack STR on him with a good sword. So instead of STR I stack magic find - I hope that works the same way it used to work in DII.
