Well, that happens often, because:
1) They says "im an Architect", the people who hire arent experts so " im Architects, 27 years, 3 years experience and i ride motorcycles" they will be like "WOW!"
2) they can manage projects but cant develop. So, theyre more like project leaders
3) They are like doogie howser
You need a lot of experience, knowledge about almost everything, infrastructure, weak points, skills, how to fix problems without ask, help people, be rational, work team, work under pressure.
I know many guys who say, "im an arch", but they arent."
The organization depends too, if i have a company, i need money. I prefer to sell archs than programmers(outsourcing)
Work hard, be honest with yourself. And you could become a good architect
