Notice that some are MB and other are MiB, for instance look how the values varies in my case

[casep@X201t ~]$ free -h --si
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:           8.0G        4.3G        1.2G        534M        2.4G        3.0G
Swap:           15G        211M         15G
[casep@X201t ~]$ free -h
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:           7.6G        4.1G        1.1G        523M        2.3G        2.8G
Swap:           15G        206M         14G

Also, look at the man/help for each for details, some are adding some values.

Regards
