This gif explains the issue.
The face has a group (with a dashed edge) created in place.
That’s fine and I’d expect the area of the surrounding face (yellow) to read as 233.5m2 (though since it’s not a Component, why would it be “cutting a hole” in the face?)
That face area should change to the correct value when the Group is moved away or deleted.
Labelling the are should definitely label the correct area.
