bsnmpd returning strange IP address values

I just started to experiment with snmp on my systems, and one of the things
I noticed is that bsnmpd returns strange values in the ipAddrTable.
As far as I understand, this table is supposed to hold network parameters
for the systems network interfaces.
When requesting that table from a host running net-snmpd the values returned
$ bsnmpwalk -v 2c -s reader at vulcan.lyx ipAddrTable
ipAdEntAddr[127.0.0.1] = 127.0.0.1
ipAdEntAddr[192.168.203.27] = 192.168.203.27
ipAdEntIfIndex[127.0.0.1] = 2
ipAdEntIfIndex[192.168.203.27] = 1
ipAdEntNetMask[127.0.0.1] = 255.0.0.0
ipAdEntNetMask[192.168.203.27] = 255.255.255.0
ipAdEntBcastAddr[127.0.0.1] = 1
ipAdEntBcastAddr[192.168.203.27] = 1
ipAdEntReasmMaxSize[127.0.0.1] = -1
ipAdEntReasmMaxSize[192.168.203.27] = -1
However, if I try this with a host running bsnmpd, I get something strange:
$ bsnmpwalk -v 2c -s reader at juno.lyx ipAddrTable
ipAdEntAddr[0.0.0.0] = 0.0.0.0
ipAdEntIfIndex[0.0.0.0] = 1
ipAdEntNetMask[0.0.0.0] = 184.108.40.206
ipAdEntBcastAddr[0.0.0.0] = 0
ipAdEntReasmMaxSize[0.0.0.0] = 65535
All systems running 10.1-STABLE
Is this because I'm looking in the wrong place for the Addresses? This
could be, because ipAddrTable is deprecated and supposed to be replaced
by ipAddressTable. However, bsnmpd appears to not know about ipAddressTable
(while net-snmp does know it, but returns no data for it).
Clue pointers appreciated.
