The warnings you're seeing are there to help pick up some common
configuration errors on the local network. However, it is perfectly
reasonable to design a network that does those sort of things
deliberately: this seems to be the case with several common DSL or
Cable Modem setups nowadays.
You can turn off some types of warning by:
# sysctl net.link.ether.inet.log_arp_wrong_iface=0
# sysctl net.link.ether.inet.log_arp_movements=0
Use sysctl.conf(5) to have those values set automatically on reboot.
