Stupid question, why doesn't it say AP MAC Address?

It is a legacy carry over from our pre-4.0 HiveManager. You can still manually create devices to manage and when doing so, it was called Node ID. This is probably an easy change (although it won't ever say AP, since we also have other managed devices :-). I can forward to product management.
