Microsoft office professional plus 2016 asking to "Try, Buy, or Activate"

I have recently installed about 300 PC's with Microsoft office professional plus 2016, using Dell Kace.
My admin install has Office registering to the KMS server.
I have 2 laptops where I get the splash screen asking to "Try, Buy, or Activate"  Office 365.
I did not load Office 365, I loaded Microsoft office professional plus 2016 and activated it to the KMS server.
I checked these 2 laptops and they show registered to the correct server, but I still get splash screen and worry that after 30 days the installation will lock up.
Has anyone seen this before?  Any suggestions?
Thank you.
