NFS connection strangeness

I've just noticed that there are some strangenesses related to NFS
connections on my 7.0-RELEASE boxes. First of all, no NFS-related
TCP connection are showed in `sockstat -4c' (not on the client, nor on
the server), though tcpdump clearly shows that there is TCP data
exchange with alredy existing connection. Next, tcpdump output is
confusing as well:

10:30:57.280063 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 46128, offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 208) > 156 access [|nfs]
10:30:57.280279 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 24588, offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 176) > reply ok 124 access [|nfs]

what the heck is 834052435 in >
line? For other tcp connections source port is shown there as expected.
