Help needed with "Smart Fasteners" feature in a large assembly


Hello All,

Recently i am facing a problem with the Smart Fasteners option in assembly mode, each time i am trying to select a corner plate that contain only 8 holes so i am predicting only 8 bolts to be attached but More 3 bolts are attached and included in my group without any holes to be attached to, also i have error in mates in my part. Can anyone explain why this happen and how can i deal with that ? (You can see this problem in Picture 001,002,003)

Thanks in advance for you time and help
