Yes, some AM3 motherboards can support older gen CPU's. This is quite normal actually.

I'm not sure exactly what you are confused about. Can you explain further?
I've read somewhere that only AM3 processors work on AM2(+) motherboards due to the presence of both the DDR2 and DDR3 memory controllers on the processor, but not as well AM2 CPU on AM3 board.
