Hi, Tausleef, and welcome to our forum!

There could be a number of ways that this happens. Some larger networks use multiple servers (DHCP, basically) to assign IP Addresses, and maybe the one that served you that address is configured to do that. Maybe your PC is set with a static IP address as you describe.

There are several ways it can happen.
