Why does Photoshop CS keep changing my selected PMS colors?

I'm working on several different photoshop files and am having the same problem in all of them.  I'm sure it's some issue with my settings.  I have just enough Photoshop knowledge to be dangerous.  My files are in CMYK mode.  I'm trying to use PMS 294 and PMS 292.  Photoshop keeps changing the colors to PMS 541 and PMS 543 respectively.  I understand why it would do that if I were in RGB trying to use PMS process colors but I've checked and rechecked that the mode is CMYK.  Help!
