MAC is different in WIFI analyzeer

Hello. I have 8 Aruba Instant 105 AP's in my office and they are using the virtual controller setup. They seem to work fine. My question has to do with MAC addressing. When I look at the Aruba Instant web page for the controller I can see the AP's and their MAC addresses and everything looks good. When I use a WIFI analyzer on my phone (and I tried a couple different ones) I see the WIFI networks and I see similar MAC address, but never the actual MAC address of an AP. Why is that?

This is a very common question.
