If it's coming from a wired client then it's data packets coming from a wireless coordinator, ie, it's a bridged wired client and fromds data has been seen sourced from its mac.

If it's wireless, it's tods data coming from that mac.

Beacons and probes don't really factor into it since that tracking is applied to the data patterns.
