I don't know the full situation, but if you have had stragglers, or wounded, and then added replacements to the weakened unit, then stragglers, or wounded, can return to the unit and cause an overbuild.
The game does not seem to have a control over the size of units and the strength indication (10) in your example is only advisory and you can overbuild if you choose. It is useful to wait before allocating replacements to see if stragglers, or wounded, will return to the unit, before wasting replacements on a unit which may not need them.
I had an infantry unit fleeing from the battle area, shedding stragglers all the way, eventually getting down to strength 1, but after being attached to the Army Commander was restored to nearly full strength, without replacements.
It's another decision path, how far is the unit from the hospital to regain wounded, how far has it marched after losing stragglers, will they be able to rejoin, are there any enemy units in the way .......?
