It never showed up on any volumes, or in 'vos listaddrs' output?

What I'm guessing happened is that an entry for the new address got added=20
as a result of someone running a fileserver on that address at some time in =

the past -- either during testing before the renumbering, or because that=20
address belonged to a server before -- or as a result of some vos command.=20
For example, using 'vos addsite' to add a rep site on the new address=20
before the renumbering happened might get you into this situation.
