What causes Select by Feature Code to be inconsistent?

I'm pretty new at TBC and I'm trying to select all of the points in my project with a particular Feature Code (231 in this case). It's behaving in a very inconsistent manner. Using the Select Points tool under Selection Explorer, I enter 231 under Feature Code (and nothing else) and it selects six points out of roughly 100. If I go to GIS: Advanced Select, choose Data Type:Point/Data w-the following property/Feature Code/Equals/231, then I get the same six points.

However if I use Advanced Select's regular expression, Data Type:Point/Data w-the following property/Feature Code/Equals Regular Expression/^231, then I get 9 points. See attached screenshots. These points are not sequential/neighboring rows. The 'extra' points I get from using the regular expression include some but not all of the codes that are similar to 2311 or 231 10:06:44.

 

This is intensely frustrating. Can someone please clue me in to what is going on?
