The number shown on the stats page includes all normal achievements (which are all earned by default) as well as any shadow achievements you have earned (which are uncounted until you earn them). For example, if you have 100 normal achievements and no shadow achievements, you would see 100/322 on the stats page. If you then completed 5 shadow achievements, the number would change to 105/327, since the shadow achievements are only counted after you achieve them.
