Comment (by irl):

 So this appears then to be an issue with perhaps a few things:

  * Tor Check is not returning all exits in the exit-addresses that it
 knows about
  * Some relays are configured to listen on their IPv4 interfaces only when
 IPv6 addresses may be used for connections from the exit relay
  * IPv6 privacy (temporary) addressing is in use and the IPv6 interface
 rapidly changes what the source address used is (quicker than Tor Check
 can keep up, I'm not sure of the reporting mechanism used)

 I don't think this is a bug in Tor Browser, I think this is a problem in
 Tor Check. I'm not convinced that tbb-team is the appropriate owner for
 this bug either (though I'm also not an appropriate owner for it).
