Sure, this can happen when Modeller builds the model, since it tries to
satisfy all the restraints, and while there are dihedral restraints that
try to keep residues out of the disallowed regions, these can conflict
with other parts of the system - for example, a steric clash with some
other part of the backbone or sidechains. You can try to refine these
residues in another package if you like, or add explicit restraints on
them to try to force their conformation into what you feel is the
"right" one, but you can't guarantee that will work, of course.
