IOW, nothing to worry about

Note: I have not actually seen the code for this and am just deducing from CAN data, available DBs on and experience seeing these things happen to me as well in flight.
I thought it might be something like that for the second case... but in the first scenario it actually told me it was still the departure airport which has a different frequency altogether. And when I used the find feature on the GTN to load the frequency, it changed the ID to the destination. So something is still wacky to me.
