Reboot information is related to SNMP service/daemon. It should not be work like this. SNMP service/daemon can be crashed or restarted for some reason (most of the time). And for that it's not a reliable service for tracking reboots. We need other solution (maybe different OID) for this out of the box. There are plenty of threads about this issue. Some of them are below.
