My problem is that router have same MAC address on diffent virtual-router interfaces, which will prevent my switches from routing correctly. I'm using a FastIron Edge x624HF Premium router. I can post the config information if needed.

I get the same mac address for my normal ethernet interfaces also, 0012.f2aa.0180. every interface has that mac address. I'm running Flash Version 05.1.00bT3e3 (SXR05100..bin) and my bootroom code is Version 05.1.00T3e5. Was this issue addresed in other flashes or bootrom code? Am I missing something completely?

You can't really assign a static MAC address to a VE interface so this doesnt make sense .
Can you please grab a show version and a show mac output from the switch and also on the ve interface ? Let me see what i can find .

Actually it seems like this is how it is suppose to work . The mgmt , ve interfaces are tied to the mac on the physical interface . I can see the same on one of our FI boxes .
1/3/8 ERR-DIS None None None None No 1 0 748e.f8cf.6b9e
mgmt1 Up None Full 1G None No None 0 748e.f8cf.6b5a
Port Link State Dupl Speed Trunk Tag Pvid Pri MAC Name
ve10 Up N/A N/A N/A None N/A N/A N/A 748e.f8cf.6b5a
ve20 Up N/A N/A N/A None N/A N/A N/A 748e.f8cf.6b5a
The routing will happen with the ip addresses .

As qshaikh mentioned this is by design and vendor independent, almost all network systems work that way. Your switches behind the FastIron seems to be odd or very old when they get problems with this. Nowadays every switch build his Forwarding Databse (FDB) VLAN-specific to deal with one MAC in multiplte VLANs. This is a standard feature and nothing special.
