This happens sometimes on food labels due to rounding errors when they process the contents on a larger scale. They round to the nearest grm, so the numbers may have come out to 4.4 grms carbs and 4.5 grms fiber per serving after analyzing a truckload of the stuff.

I did have a fiber supplement once that listed 4 grams of fiber and broke it down to 4 grams of soluble and 4 grams of insoluble. Somebody clearly made a mistake on that one.
