The address set via the Address configuration option is the one that you
want to see published in the server descriptor.  If it's not set, then
tor will start guessing, and in your case the guess went wrong [1], or
at least changed.

I have Address set even on my non-multihomed, single-IP-address relays.


[1] And that may be a regression; I haven't looked at that part.
