I can't reproduce the same result in the latest BusyBox version from git.
Perhaps this has been fixed already?

Here is what I get:

    $ printf '\1\0\7\1\0\10\n\n' | cksum
    111069432 8
    $ printf '\1\0\7\1\0\10\n\n' | sum
    18961     1
    $ printf '\1\0\7\1\0\10\n\n' | ./busybox cksum
    111069432 8
    $ printf '\1\0\7\1\0\10\n\n' | ./busybox sum
    18961     1
    $ printf '\1\4\5\1\4\6\n\n' | ./busybox sum
    18961     1
    $ printf '\1\4\5\1\4\6\n\n' | sum
    18961     1
    $ printf '\1\4\5\1\4\6\n\n' | ./busybox cksum
    3951495440 8
    $ printf '\1\4\5\1\4\6\n\n' | cksum
    3951495440 8
    $ ./busybox | head -n 1
    BusyBox v1.26.0.git (2016-09-23 07:33:08 CST) multi-call binary.
    $ sum --version | head -n 1
    sum (GNU coreutils) 8.21
    $ cksum --version | head -n 1
    cksum (coreutils) 8.21
