Is it possible that whatever parsing tool is being used is counting the misses on Fire at Will, but not counting the correct number of potential activations, therefore driving the Hit:Miss ratio off-center?
Given that information you aren't forced to only account for hits and misses. But sure the guys could try. You could also just check to see if FAW is adding as much damage as it should be.
We know what normal phaser fire does. We know how many activations FAW will trigger given a known amount of targets. Check to see if the incremental damage dealt by FAW matches those expectations. If it does, it could just be a reporting issue. If it doesn't, it would be a FAW issue.
If you're having difficulty with a metric, and you think the metric itself may be the issue, try a different one.
