AFAIK OpenBSD is really running on a Solaris server (as virtual host).

But Queso always was very inaccurate. I really don't know why anybody
is still using it - maybe because it pushes Linux numbers? (IOS runs
with Queso so I give a damm on their statistics.)

For real OS detection use mmap. At least mmap will never give you
so completly wrong answers (e.g. Cisco for NetBSD >1.3I).
Dies ist Thilos Unix Signature! Viel Spass damit.
