I think we need a drawing/schematic of how 'you' have everything hooked up. This might help us clarify things up.

So for added info:
Voltages between 'parallel' cells can not have different voltages, not possible. Voltages between 'series' connected cells/packs can have different voltages, and this is what I was assuming when you stated different voltage readings earlier.

It is still possible the bms can be wired up exactly as it's supposed to be, and still not function as intended. Unfortunately, they can't be all be tested before they leave the factory, especially chinesium brands.
Proceed with caution. Knowledge is Power! Literally! Cool

See the photos of the pack with the BMS.  I think you can see the wiring.   Update: I added a link to a photo of a commercial 4S8P pack here I think I see a potential problem.  In my pack I don't have strips going from end-to-end on all banks.
