In commit commit b596229448dd ("net: mscc: ocelot: Add support for tcam"), Horatiu Vultur define the max number of policers as 383:
+#define OCELOT_POLICER_DISCARD 0x17f
VCAP IS2 use this policer to set drop action. I did not change this and set the VCAP policers with 128-191 according to the VSC7514 document.

I don't know why 383 was used as the maximum value of policer in the original code. Can Microchip people check the code or the documentation for errors?

I didn't find Seville's document, if this allocation is right, I will add it in Seville driver.
