MAC Address Inconsistency

Hi everyone. I have a Strongbox 5250v and I noticed a weird behavior with this box. In the WebGUI the Interfaces List shows me some MAC addresses, listed bellow:



Those UP interfaces (2.1 and 2.2) are members of a Trunk and this trunk is member of two VLANs (internal and external).


When go to CLI and run a ifconfig, the internal and external interfaces shows me MAC addresses of interfaces that are with state DOWN and have no cable plugged in it (interfaces 1.2 and 1.3).


external Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:E9:CE:0C:03


internal Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:E9:CE:0C:04


I've updated this box from 11.5.4 to 11.6.1 and then to 12.1.1, in all versions I had this "inconsistency" of information. Although there is this difference between WebGUI and the real MAC Addresses in the network, everything is working properly (until now). Have anyone seen this situation before?
