I believe the first number is the objset number, where the objset can
be either a dataset or a snapshot.  The corrupt block likely exists in
multiple snapshots, but "zpool status" will show only one, whichever
it happened to find first.  You can see the objset numbers for
datasets (but not snapshots) in the output of "sysctl kstat.zfs".  The
second number I believe is the object number, and that should never
change.
