That command show the license for the PC O/S and that was pre-installed by Dell. It's not showing the Office 2010 license information by was assigned by KMS.

This video explains how the KMS Server operates and how clients identify it via DNS.  You can find in by lookinhg for the _VLMCS record under , _tcp.  It will contain the name of the KMS server.  If you go the event viewer of the server then you should see KMS events.
