Please run turbostat, which always describes what the hardware does.
Depending on the version of powertop and the hardware involved,
it may be describing that the OS requested -- which is not always the same.

The hardware reserves the right to demote any requested C-state to a
shallower one. Also, it is the hardware decision whether to promote
core c-states requested by the OS into power saving package C-states.
