Interesting tracking observation: Safari vs. Chrome

Today I was doing some testing in web analytics in Marketo and I noticed an interesting behavior while I was connected to our corporate network via VPN.

 

If I browse the tracked website (our) in Safari browser, Marketo (Munchkin) assigns to the variable "Inferred Company or ISP" value of our company name (expected, because of VPN). However, if I do the same in Chrome (everything else is the same), the assigned value is my ISP name, not my company. That is unexpected and I guess tied to how Chrome talks to network and pushes things down the network stack. Does anybody know why this happens this way? I know it's a pretty random issue, but still

 

Thanks ;m
