Using LND, I opened a channel with --local_amt=1100000 and --push_amt=500000. I would think that would open a channel with a capacity of 1100000, a local balance of 600000 and a remote balance of 500000.

But when I run listchannels, it tells me the following:

"capacity": "1100000",
"local_balance": "596530",
"remote_balance": "500000",

Where did the other 3470 satoshis go?

EDIT: There is a separate reserve balance of 10000 satoshis which I can see by running the walletbalance command, so it doesn't seem like it is part of that.
