BigIron RX debug mac learning command

I was trying to debug a problem in mac forwarding database (a mac address was flapping between two ports while it shouldn't) and tried to activate the debug of a single mac address using the command:

debug mac learning XXXX.XXXX.XXXX

After issuing the command I started seeing debug information logs not only for the mac address I issued the command for, but others too:

debug mac learning 0014.384c.361d

        learning:  debugging is on

        based on mac-id:  debugging is on

Sep  9 15:16:09 MAC_INFO: mac address 0019.992e.b985. vlan 4 old port 2/8 new port 2/7

Does anyone knows if it is an expected result?

Thank you,
