One explanataion is that they look okay on the monitor because monitors don't display out of gamut colors the same way that your printing system is printing them. But the question needs to be asked: out of *what* gamut. Often people use the gamut check, but do not have an appropriate CMYK space selected to check the gamut of... so what you are really checking is that for SWOP offset printing those colors are not in gamut. If you actually have an accurate CMYK profile for a good CMYK RIP for your Epson selected, then this tool is telling you that you truely can't print those colors to your inkjet, and depending on rendering intent, one or another adjustment will occur.
