```Yeah, that's definitely a bug. The Integer program gets a correct {x, y,
z} but the wrong objective value:

problem =
max[{30 x + 20 y + 15 z, x >= 0, y >= 0, z >= 0,
7 x + 7 y + 3 z <= 100, 3 x + y + 2 z <= 50}, {x, y, z}];
problem /. Last[problem /. max -> Maximize]

max[{450, True, True, True, True, True}, {10, 0, 10}]

problem =
max[{30 x + 20 y + 15 z, x >= 0, y >= 0, z >= 0,
7 x + 7 y + 3 z <= 100, 3 x + y + 2 z <= 50}, {x, y, z}, Integers];
problem /. Last[problem /. max -> Maximize]

max[{450, True, True, True, True, True}, {10, 0, 10}, Integers]
