Contribution counts from GitHub Enterprise Server are considered private contributions. The commit details will only show the contribution counts and that these contributions were made on GitHub Enterprise Server.

If end users of GitHub Enterprise Server and GitHub.com want to make their private contribution counts public, they can publicize their private contribution counts. For more information, see "Publicizing or hiding your private contributions on your profile."
