When you scan your site with builtwith.com, what do your nginx logs say
the requests were?

When you make those same requests yourself, what responses do you get?

Pay particular attention to the http headers.

Perhaps builtwith.com makes a request that your nginx is configured to
reverse-proxy to an apache server, without hiding the Server header.

Perhaps builtwith.com scanned your site previously, and show all
historical answers.

Perhaps builtwith.com uses heuristics which are wrong for your site.
