It confused me when I first saw it too, but believe it is showing you the IP address of the device that is currently logged jnto the DSM session (at least admin). Mine changes from a home network address to my office network, mobile phone etc depending in where I access the DSM from.
I'm not quite sure what the relevance is and the need to throw up a notification about it, I know where I am :)
