The pattern that I have assigned to my reservoir, demand or sanitary loading does not match the graphed results in the model.

Solution - General

Make sure that both your start time in the calculation option (Analysis >  Calculation Options) and the Start Time of your pattern (Components > Patterns) are set to the same time. If these are not set to the same time you might get a graph in your model that looks similar to the pattern that you have defined, but it will be shifted based on the start time that you have set.

Solution - Explicit (SWMM) solver and patterns
