XR500 Lan Port numbers

So i noticed this today. Some Firmwareupdate for the XR500 changed the Lanportnumbers (dont know how to call them exacly). Now the Lanport 1 on the back of the Router ist Lan Port 4, Lan port 4 ist port 1 and so on. Is this a known bug or is something wrong with my XR500 ?

What firmware are you on and are you absolutely sure this wasn't present before the update?

Yes i'am sure. I dont know when exacly this changed but i noticed it today when Eth 1 port on the front still blinking when i unplugged the cable at the back of the Router. My current firmware is V2.3.2.18 with German GUI
