The numbers in parenthesis are "previously seen" estimates of peers/seeds that might have once been on the torrent even briefly in the last few weeks/months/years.
Those numbers are often bogus, due to bugs in qBitTorrent/libtorrent and other BitTorrent clients...as well as over-counting anything that's either multi-WAN (even having IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time counts) or changes ip addresses sometimes.

The numbers outside the parenthesis are the currently connected (or attempting to connect) peers or seeds.
