According to the info you posted, the MAC address does NOT match what is plugged in. Are you looking at a sticker on the hardware or in software that tells you the device's address? Is this a PC that is plugged in or another type of device? (The OUI is Dell, so I assume that it is a PC.) On some devices it is possible to change the MAC address of the unit. It is possible that this is what has happened. Another possiblity: does the device or PC that is plugged into the port have dual ethernet? If so, it could be the wrong port on the PC (or device) got plugged in to the switch by mistake.
