This is probably a bug, but in any case, since Maximize uses exact
algebraic methods it is not a good idea to have approximate numbers
in input. Rationalizing your first input will produce the right answer:
Maximize[{x1 + x2 + x3 + x4, Element[x1 | x2 | x3 | x4, Integers] &&
Rationalize[0 <= x1 <= 5.6 && 0 <= x2 <= 8.6 && 0 <= x3 <=
9.7 &&
4. <= x4 <= 22.4]}, {x1, x2, x3, x4}]
{44, {x1 -> 5, x2 -> 8, x3 -> 9, x4 -> 22}}
